Sustainability Reading Club

In 2021, we started a reading club! Its purpose is twofold:

  1. To create a platform for guided and meaningful discussions pertaining to sustainability.
  2. To bring together like-minded individuals who want to share their insights, but also learn from other sustainability enthusiasts.

Our reading club has been running almost a year and we are excited to announce the continuation of organising engaging discussions on books about sustainability! 😀 Ever wonder about the carbon footprint of everything? Then we have some terrific news! For the anniversary read we are taking a dive into the book, How Bad are Bananas 🍌, by Carbon emissions expert, Mike Berners-Lee. 🙂
