Education for Sustainable Lifestyles Workshop
Date: 12th of July, 09:00-13:00
Place: Volvo Hall, Scandinavian House, 58 Park Avenue, NYC
Join us in learning how sustainable lifestyles can become more desirable, accessible and normal
This workshop is organized as an interactive game in which everyone participates including the panel of invited international experts. We will explore what sustainable lifestyles are and who has what responsibility for making sustainable lifestyles the norm and not the exception.
The game will help us examine essential ingredients of living well: family and community, time as a resource, freedom and discovery, and balancing obligations and wishes. It will assist us in reflecting on relevant strategies for achieving sustainable lifestyles—strategies such as deciphering the systemic nature of lifestyles, taking advantage of life stages and transitions, accommodating diversity in lifestyles, and engaging in collective action.
The roulette wheel will determine who gets the first say, who must answer the questions from the participants and who gets the opportunity to share examples of successful solutions.
