Presented by Shareable Strategic Partnerships Director Tom Llewellyn.
The School of Global Environmental Sustainability Global Challenges Research Team "Clothing and Sustainability" invite the community and campus to a public lecture and interactive workshop.
Cities are beset with the most urgent challenges that societies face today including inequality, racism, social isolation, resource consumption, and climate change. Amidst this crisis lies tremendous opportunity for people to address these problems collectively. To meet challenges, communities, organizations, and local governments are increasingly turning to a basic human practice: sharing. By sharing their labor, knowledge, space, and goods, people are finding that they can overcome scarcity and experience private sufficiency and civic abundance by building and maintaining vital common resources. They are showing how sharing leads everyone to have more, together.
Attend one or both events:
Public lecture: Activating the Urban Commons | 2-3pm
Interactive workshop: Reimagining the Waste Stream | 3:30-5:30pm
