Cafe Scientifique: Oxfordshire's Living Laboratory - 2nd Tues (9/3), 7.30pm on Zoom

on Tue, 09/03/2021 - 7:30pm

Oxfordshire's Living Laboratory with Sally Povolotsky

7.30pm Tuesday 9th March 2021

The word ‘sustainable' is everywhere now, but what does it really mean? What is sustainability or even a circular economy? As the world changes, climate emergencies are declared and more dramatic extreme weather events and pandemics rise, how can being ’sustainable’ help solve these challenges and what can a community truly contribute to an ever-changing world? If we press the RESET button, what is the outcome?

We will discuss the elements of a Sustainable community and how Kindness can change the world….as long as we all adopt it.

Sally Povolotsky is a Sustainability and Prototype Engineer who in 2020 was voted one of the UK’s top 50 Women in Engineering in the field of Sustainability. She is also a Director of Living Oxfordshire and runs the Hendreds’ Hive Markets.
