Conversations about climate change: reflecting on action at home, school and in local spaces

Environment Themed photo of pair of binoculars and a bird guide

What’s on offer?

The event will explore this idea by looking at plant-based lifestyles, and education for sustainability and even low-carbon ornithology! There will be a panel talk with a Q&A for the audience to ask questions and we will end with vegan cake and food tasting and a short quiz where the winning team will win a prize.

What’s it about?

What do veganism, low-carbon ornithology, education for sustainability and cake have in common? Join us at this event at Firstsite in Colchester on 11th November at 7:30pm to explore ways that we can help and enjoy our environment in sustainable ways.

Often we are told that to change the world, we need to shop, eat and travel differently. How we decide to do this is personal to us. It may be that we start new interests or adapt current activities to reduce environmental impact.

Who’s leading the event?

The event will be hosted by Dr Katy Wheeler, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Norman Riley, Sociology PhD student, and Professor Sean Nixon, Professor of Sociology at University of Essex.
