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.
