Eco-friendlier after the crisis?

Thu 10 September 2020, 19:30 - 22:00

What effect has the corona crisis had on your ideas about the environment and sustainability? Share your experiences and listen to others! Live in the Kargadoor or online via Zoom.

How did the Corona pandemic affect our relationship with the environment? Can we keep a more sustainable environment after the crisis? Do you now consider flying less often? Perhaps even travelling less often and working more frequently from home? Do you now prefer travelling by car instead of taking the bus or train?

How did you manage your food consumption, stocking and waste during the crisis? Have you tried to grow your vegetables and fruit at home? Have you discovered local organic markets? Have you considered doing groceries online? Did your energy consumption change after the lockdown? Are you consuming now more or less energy than before? How did you observe the air and water pollution in this period? Have you appreciated parks and nature more than before?

These and other questions will be the topic on 10 September. We’ll share our ideas about sustainability, as well as our experiences and dreams about the future. In this dialogue, we will focus on how the corona crisis brought the sustainability discussion forward.

Emerging Stronger from the Crisis

Corona crisis has suddenly changed many things in our lives; we had to continue our work or studies from home, perhaps lost our jobs and weren’t allowed to see our family and friends. Since June, our lives started adjusting to a ‘new normal’. How did you experience the crisis? What changed in your daily lives? Are your views and values changing somehow? Which of these changes do you wish to maintain moving forward, and how can you make that happen?

This dialogue is part of the series Emerging Stronger from the Crisis >>>
