Green Scams workshop
Who is ripping us off? When aren’t we getting environmental benefits that we’re told to expect from ‘green’ products, projects, or investments?
Everyone is invited to an interactive workshop about this topic — so we can share knowledge, and talk through difficult questions
WHERE – At the Black Shire pub (511 Talbot Street) (see map – http://tinyurl.com/3ctqezs)
WHEN – On Tuesday, May 3rd, at 7pm
The event poster is here.
Questions that we might cover -
- Is nuclear power environmentally friendly?
- Should we be supporting “organic” food?
- Is the Alberta tar sands industry cleaning up all of their environmental impacts?
- Does recycling a water bottle make up for its environmental cost?
- Is there false advertising for cosmetic, hygiene, or scrubbing products?
- Are compact fluorescent light bulbs helpful?
Community members are invited to give very brief presentations about specific topics. The questions raised above are just examples of what we could talk about.
If you just want to come to listen, you’re welcome to do so.
Toward the end of the event, we’ll talk about how we can take action to respond to the green scams that we focus on during the workshop. The whole point of this side of the discussion will be to see what people would actually be interested in being part of.
People’s Assembly for Climate Justice organizers are calling this workshop — with anyone who wants to collaborate with us.
