(Sustainable) Consumption – A choice!?

Location: Hörsaal O1
Address: Warburger Str. 100, 33098 Paderborn

Global consumer goods shape our lives. Yet at the same time, many consumers have a growing desire to act responsibly. This workshop, planned by the Initiative Nachhaltigkeit (Sustainability Initiative), looks to address and explore global-local consumption contexts in everyday life. The focus is not only to look at one’s own options for action, but also on the underlying concepts and premises of what sustainable consumption means. In cooperation with civil society initiatives, participants will explore various facets of sustainable consumption at several different stations, for example, by looking at topics such as fair trade, solidarity-based agriculture, the premises of environmental activism and possibilities for civic engagement. u. A concluding discussion will explore the limits and possibilities of sustainable consumption in everyday life and society as well as the role that science plays in sustainability discussions.

Registration for the individual events open on 09.05.22. The event is limited to 30 participants.
