On Sunday 19 September, Emmanuel Prinet of One Earth is giving a workshop about Sustainable Consumption and Production with Stefanie Bowles of the Policy Research Initiative. It’s part of the 2010 Canadian Environmental Network conference taking place in Montreal this week. They ask participants what it would take to create a sustainable economy and society when it seems like we are often fighting brush fires. How do we get to transformative change that addresses the root causes of unsustainability? This workshop explores sustainable consumption and production as an organizing concept and holistic lens whose essence is to catalyze large-scale systemic change, both in Canada and globally. If you’re in Montreal, you can attend and discover how this approach can support your work, and share your ideas about what the effective leverage points are that will create the sustainable consumption and production patterns the world needs.
