While not ignoring the responsibility of governments and organizations to put in place the legislation and action needed to adapt to climate change, the third segment of Act I will focus on the steps that can be taken to change lifestyle habits and behavioral patterns. From fashion to plastic, food, architecture, health, economics and education — participants will look through a critical lens at the devastating impact that overconsumption is having not only on the planet, but on personal wellbeing. Join a live Q&A with environmental expert, author and Professor Tim Kasser to explore the link between values and materialism to discover how reconnecting to intrinsic values will help build sustainable lifestyle habits.
