It focuses on both the destruction that’s happening in the ocean and the efforts underway to stop it. The purpose of our event, in cooperation with Ekofilm Echoes, was to draw attention to how humans have a big impact on the chemistry of our oceans. The event is documented by several pictures.
1st edition 7. 12. 2017
The first edition happened on 7th December in Studio Alta from 6PM. The theme was Zero Waste, a concept focused on reduction of trash (mainly plastic) and finding reusable and recyclable alternatives. During the first edition of Sustainability Evenings we tried to show you how you can incorporate this philosophy into your day to day life. The program consisted in meeting local zero waste vendors and NGOs, a documentary screening of “The Clean Bin Project”, followed by a discussion on how to take action locally.
