Sustainable Living: How Can We Make a Difference, Every Day?
From cooking shows showing us the environmental impact of the food we choose to the booming war on plastic riding on the wave of Blue Planet II to the realisation of the social impact of fast fashion, today we are all more aware of our impact on the environment.
Add to this that the COVID pandemic has forced us all to live more sustainably by curbing our consumption and travel plans, and the result is that a vast majority of people now wants to embrace sustainability as a way of life.
What does it practically mean to live sustainably?
What are the everyday actions that can truly make a difference versus the greenwash claims we can all be victims of?
And finally, what’s stopping us from embracing the change?
In the first Women in Sustainability Herts event of 2021, we will be discussing the most impactful ways to live sustainably and we will be reflecting upon our own behaviour, and what can stop us from adopting the lifestyle we feel is most in line with our values.
We are delighted to be guided through this process by two incredible speakers who know very well how to live sustainably and have a mission to help others do the same:
Jen Gale, author of The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide and TEDx speaker, and Livvy Drake, sustainable sidekick to businesses campaigners and green champions helping to deliver environmental behaviour change.
If you have a sustainable heart but struggle to implement some of the changes in your life, or if you are confused about the wide variety of choices out there and wonder whether they actually make a difference, fret no more. During this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn about the most impactful ways to make a difference in your day-to-day life, but also about the habits and behaviours that might prevent you right now to embrace a more purposeful way of life.
Together, we will think of ways and strategies to implement lasting habits and behaviours towards a more sustainable future.
What’s more, you’ll be able to connect and network meaningfully with other women in sustainability that, like you, want to make a difference.
