Consumerism and Climate Change 20th June Cape Town
June 20 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
This e-mail serves to alert you to our next OMCJ meeting which will take place on Thursday, 20 June 2019 (9:30-12:30) at 129 Rochester Road, Observatory!
The topic of this meeting will be Consumerism and Climate Change. We’ll kick off with a short video from Vivek Chibber, professor of Sociology at New York University. His input will certainly get us engaged in a lively discussion around consumer choice, climate change and capitalism.
To further deepen our understanding of the links between consumerism and climate change, we’ll have brief inputs on the Car Industry(Jeff), Vegetarianism/Veganism (Sven) and One-way Plastics (Hayley McLellan, TBC). Since the whole session will be rather action orientated, we decided to deviate from our new format and open up the discussion after each input.
A detailed agenda will be circulated in due course.
