In partenariat with Tap Your Water

Description: how efficient is collective action in the reduction of plastic pollution? Should we act, if so, how fast? It can be tricky to point out ways by which we, as individuals, could help resolve such an important contemporary issue – plastic pollution. We aim to bring together not only local but also global actors to share their efforts and raise awareness on plastic pollution and its consequences. Apéritif guaranteed.

Atelier : Gestion de déchets et impacts environnementaux de notre consommation (FR)

12h30 – 14h, M3220 (Uni-Mail, UNIGE)

Organisateur: Coopérative Romande de Sensibilisation à la Gestion des Déchets (COSEDEC)

Description : Qu’est-ce qu’un cycle de vie ? Quelles sont les étapes les plus impactantes durant la vie d’une bouteille en PET ? Que peut-on faire en tant que citoyen pour rendre notre consommation plus responsable ? Animé par la Coopérative Romande de Sensibilisation à la Gestion des Déchets, cet atelier ludique a pour but de démontrer que nos leviers d’action pour verdir notre consommation ne sont pas toujours là où on les attend.

Description: Have you ever been shocked watching some plastic bags floating by the lake? Do you believe collective action can make a difference in the fight against waste? If so, come and join us for a clean-up event organized by My Green Trip, Let’s Talk Waste and Le Thiec ASD. We will unite our forces and raise awareness by action by picking up trash around the lake in Perle du Lac! After an active clean-up activity, we will play a game to teach you everything you need about recycling waste. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
