Content 4 modules
Food and kitchen: One of the biggest positive impacts we can make is through the foods we eat. There are the misconceptions that organic is expensive and that plant-based meals are boring or not nutritious enough. Boyana Duleva, manager of the new, organic and zero-waste shop Brüt by Färm shares tips & tricks about how you can make your current diet step by step more eco-friendly (without radical changes), and of course enjoying every single meal.
Clothes and wardrobe: The fashion industry has an enormous ecological impact and it's not easy to recognize clothes made in respect with nature and workers. With extra help of sustainable fashion expert Lisa Braae from WeCo store, you'll learn how to recognize and where to find eco and fair fashion, get an insight in your own wardrobe and discover what the future is bringing.
Skincare and the bathroom: Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs what we put on it. Yet, to understand the ingredients list of skincare products, we almost need to have a degree in chemistry. Discover how to make your bathroom (even more) eco-friendly, tips to understand the ingredient list, which certifications to pay attention to and what 'slow cosmetics' is about. For this module I invited also Sophie Trenteseaux from Make Senz, a Brussels' natural skincare brand. Learn about her expert tips & tricks.
Urban innovation: One of our biggest challenges today is to provide qualitative food created ecologically, especially in areas that are highly populated. With less and less available farming ground, how can we provide great food for as many people as possible? How does the food of the future look like? You'll meet Anne Colonval from Urbi Leaf from Brussels, who offers one solution: urban, vertical farming of micro-vegetables. During this module you'll discover what it's all about!
