Online Event: Children X Sustainability

SUSTAINABILITY

Why is it important to get children interested in sustainability? How can we get children involved in sustainable projects? What can these projects look like?

 

Calling all parents! Calling all educators! Calling all those interested in building a sustainable future! Have ideas on what we’re asking? Running out of ideas for your little loved ones during confinement? Join us, Paris College of Art Master’s students, as we host an online conference addressing sustainability. This online conference will host panelists and various performing artists to present sustainability in both a fun and accessible way to children… Educational and interactive, we hope that both children and participants come with questions, ideas, and motivation to have some ‘green’ fun!

Our goal? To come together as children & adults (through this online platform) to discuss, educate, and mobilize ourselves in building a more sustainable future.

Join us this Sunday morning, November 22nd, at 10:30 am PARIS time for this free online event, our panelists include:
