Towards Responsible Lifestyle
Sustainability is not only about the health and well-being of the planet; it's also about the health and well-being of the people. To improve the wellness of a community is by making smart, informed decisions about the design and maintenance of our habitats. It is without doubt that the underprivileged get affected the most with changes in climate yet the privileged remain blindsided to the consequences of their everyday actions. It is an impetus for people to make conscious choices available in terms of services, products and comfort available which will have lower impact on the planet. Small changes in the mode of travel, shopping mindfully, and reducing human desires can all accumulate towards a sustainable future when aggregated to the population as a whole. In the longer-term, the effects will increasingly depend on the extent to which transformational action is taken now to reduce emissions and avoid the breaching of dangerous temperature thresholds and potential irreversible tipping points. In this session, we will discuss the lifestyle impacts of individuals on health and how to simplify greener lifestyle choices for community building.
