Session 4 : SusSEd 2020

About this Event

The Sustainability Skills & Education (SusSEd) series is a collection of engaging and interactive lunchtime talks, designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to bring about a more sustainable world. Delivered by academics and PhD scholars from the University of Sheffield, these sessions will cover different aspects of sustainability, and will be held between February 4th and March 5th, 12:10-1pm. This year the talks will focus on The Whole Story of Consumption. Whether you're pushing to develop the skills needed to make a real difference or just want to hear more about what sustainability entails, everyone is welcome at our free sessions!

Tackling Consumption: The Trouble with Travel

Humans consume more each year than the earth can replace and the world's relatively wealthy are disproportionately responsible. What makes us consume as we do and how can we change it? In this session led by Dr Matt Watson, we'll focus in on how we travel, and particularly on flight. Consumption happens in work as well as home and leisure, so we'll aim to get on to talking about flight and the University to get your input to effecting change there. The session will be a mix of talk, group discussions and feedback.

Please note booking your place for these talks is not strictly necessary, but it will help the organisers greatly and allow you to avoid disappointment should the venue become full. Thank you.
