Workshop Themes

I’m adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle

The current environmental issues and limitations of our planet sometimes lead us to believe that there’s nothing we can do on an individual level. But that’s not true! This workshop provides concrete, affordable solutions to help people reduce their environmental impact on a daily basis. Doing your part for the planet can start with reducing at the source by fighting food waste, reducing your personal waste, extending the useful life of your belongings and putting other cost-effective, eco-friendly
tricks into use.

I’m eating sustainably

From the farm to our tables, the way we eat has a major impact on our health and the planet. People are often unaware of the consequences of the way they eat or don’t know where to start to make an effort. But don’t worry! This conference provides an introduction to sustainable eating and offers concrete solutions to help everyone make more informed choices. After all, eating means voting with your dollars! Doing your part for the planet can start with becoming well informed and equipped with the right tools so you can make good food choices and fight food waste.

I love my garbage but I'm leaving it!

What happens to our waste once it's thrown into the bin? What roles do recycling and composting play in the fight against climate change? How can we reduce our waste and lessen our daily impact? This workshop provides an introduction to these issues, while demystifying our systems for sorting and recovering residual materials. We will present concrete, fun solutions accessible to all, along with tools for taking action.
