About the Programme/Event

In the frenzy of our everyday lives, we seldom stop to think about how our consumption habits impact the environment. Though consumption is the lifeblood of the global economy, over consumption can deplete earth’s reserve of natural resources. Join us to understand why it pays to care about the way we make use of products and services.
