The marketplace is full of human rights issues with business practices often undermining the fight for labor rights and climate change action. At the same time, the mass extraction, production, consumption, and disposal required to support our culture of consumption has severely impacted our ability to provide a sustainable world for future generations.
Given these issues, how can we use our consumption choices to positively influence the marketplace? In this talk, Amnesty International will discuss what is ethical consumption (“better” consumption) and voluntary simplicity (“less” consumption), and how these concepts can help us wield influence in the marketplace. Together, participants will explore how we can support better business practices in our daily lives.
English-language support will be provided if needed, plus complimentary snacks and drinks, to create a friendly, relaxed “pavement café” atmosphere. Learn about human rights, brush up your English, and connect with like-minded people!
