Eating sustainably is something many of us aspire to do. But, what exactly does sustainable mean in the context of food? In this session, you will explore how the conventional agricultural has played a role in the creation of climate change and why local, seasonal, organic and zero waste diets that emphasize plant based foods make a difference. You will be exploring the greenhouse gas, natural resource and biodiversity impact of the food that you eat so you can make decisions about your diet and if it is a reflection of your values. Understanding why change is important is a bedrock for making personal change and influencing others. In this session, we aim not only to amplify your knowledge, but through the exercises, help you develop your own stories so you can share your knowledge with impact.
