Practical workshop: Responsible consumption (2h)
The observation is without appeal. No matter what issues challenge us, there is only one origin: our unbridled consumption. The famous "always more" and "never enough". If every human consumed like a Canadian, a Luxembourger or an American, we would need 5 planets to satisfy his needs.
But precisely, how to define a need? Depending on whether one lives in a rich and developed country or a developing country, this definition differs. How to become aware of this unbridled over consumption? This workshop offers us an important and non-guilt-inducing reflection on our role as an economic actor or citizen. It helps us take stock of gestures, behaviors and actions that can easily fit into our daily lives.
As a recognized agent of social change, Canadian facilitator Jean Provencher will bring his decades-long expertise and social commitment to participants.
Activity accessible to all audiences: individuals, schools, companies, organizations
Raise awareness of the major, very real, and destructive impacts of our endless consumption patterns.
Understand the process of creating and responding to a need to be able to intervenein one or the other of the stages and thus reduce the resulting consumption.
