As part of the Green Drinks series put on by the SSMU and PGGS environment committees, Shona Watt from TinyHomestead will be leading a discussion on sustainability in business on October 21st from 5-7pm in the Thomson House Basement (McGill University).
Despite the pressing need to tackle climate change, few governments have committed to serious action necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In many ways, businesses have the potential to lead the world to a more responsible future. However, most businesses rely on a capitalist model, which values the pursuit of profits over the exploitation of nature and vulnerable communities. Can companies really embody the solutions necessary for our well-being, or is capitalism fundamentally at odds with true sustainability? This presentation and discussion will be led by Shona Watt of TinyHomestead.ca, a small business dedicated to teaching and implementing urban sustainability.
All welcome! Light refreshments provided.

Thanks to all those who registered for this session of the Urban Sustainability Skills Course; c'est parti! We have a great mix of students, recent grads, and professionals with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
On Monday, we made lots and lots of applesauce. Applesauce is super easy to make and turns simple fresh apples and ground cinnamon into a magical-smelling, delicious treat that can be canned for winter or eaten immediately. Next week, we'll be talking about canning, freezing, fermenting, and other ways to preserve local food during the long winter months.
Registration is closed for the fall session, but more classes will be offered in January! Check back later in the fall for details, and keep and eye out here for upcoming workshops and discussions.
