An informal yet focused chat on sustainability topics. Inspired by the first Berlin CS Sustainability Meetup that took place at the beginning of this month. (Visit the group: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=49785)
How does it work?
1) Bring the sustainability-related questions that are on your mind, from the ones about everyday things ("how do I clean the house without using polluting chemicals?") to the very big ones ("how do we move to a society that doesn't create trash?") and everything in between.
2) (optional) Let the group know why it matters. While many issues are obvious, not everyone may know, for example, how high meat consumption relates to poor agricultural development in far-away countries.
3) (optional) If you have answers, even partial ones, pitch them!
4) Watch as the group comes up with ideas and information you might never have dreamed of. A notebook is highly recommended. ;)
Please note: a more central location would be even better but I don't know one as suitable as this for a group conversation. If you have suggestions, feel free to write them in the comments!
