Learn ‘green’ behaviours at sustainability talk Thursday

An upcoming free virtual workshop will help outline steps people can take to lead a greener and more sustainable life.

Hosted by the Community Speaker Series in Brock’s Department of Applied Disability Studies, “Earth Day Every Day: What You Can Do To Be Green!” will be presented online by the Ontario Behaviourists for Social Responsibility Special Interest Group on Thursday, April 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Panellists for the event, which will touch on issues of climate change and sustainability, will include Adrienne Perry, Associate Professor of Psychology at York University; Pam Shea, Professor in the Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology at St. Lawrence College; Don Togade, Professor in the Honours Bachelor of Behaviour Analysis Program at George Brown College; Brock alumna Hanna Vance (MA ’21); and Kendra Thomson, Associate Professor in Brock’s Department of Applied Disability Studies.

The panel will brainstorm both root causes and solutions for environmental issues and consider how personal actions in three key areas of transportation, homes and workplaces can help make every day Earth Day. Their discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.

Participants can expect to leave the event with ideas on formulating their own action plan to adopt more green behaviours.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required to obtain the meeting link.
