January 2021: Zero Waste: Solutions for a Sustainable Future
Six two-hour webinars, taught by Zero Waste Youth USA Member Sage Lenier.
An award-winning, crash-course Everything We Can Do to Save The Planet 101 to equip its students with the tools necessary for changing the fate of humanity.
We begin with an in-depth look at consumption, waste streams, and the materials of that modern society.
Following that, we delve into: circular economy/cradle-to-cradle design, the industrialization of modern food, sustainable cities and architecture, climate change politics, decarbonization and more!
This course is solutions-based, with scalable actions that you can implement in your life, community, and career to properly address the ecological crisis.
Past students agree that it will invariably change your life and make you see the world differently!
