- Session type
- Technical level
To evaluate and understand the practical methods of reducing one’s environmental footprint in modern, hyperconnected world.
The lecture/ presentation would try to adress following qustions:
As an individual who is looking to reduce one’s environmental impacts, what are the challenges that the globalised enconomies and trade throw up? As a consumer, what products have the highest footprints? Are green products really green? Does vegan/ vegetarian/ organic diets help? How do Indians compare to the rest of the world? Can an individual behavioural change make any difference? What more can an individual do? And most importantly, why should everyone care about answers to these questions?
None. Except interest in the topic.
