Sustainability Coordinator asks What’s Your Eco-Footprint?

February 14, 2013

This week, marked the launch of the Red River College Sustainability Speaker Series.

In this session, I asked the question “What’s Your Eco-Footprint?” and told a story of humanity’s demand on nature.

Some of the highlights from the session were:

  • It would take 5 planets if everyone on the planet lived like an average Winnipegger.
  • Learning about Earth Overshoot Day, and what it means for the planet.
  • Knowing the top 5 things you can do to reduce your Eco-Footprint.

To find out more, check out the presentation here and calculate your own footprint at www.myfootprint.org.

This was another successful green event; thanks to Mondragon for supplying the fabulous vegan cookies.

Watch for information on the next Series presentation coming March 19th, when Manitoba Hydro tells us how it PAYS to be Power Smart.
