What is the Sustainability Night about?
Are you wondering why sustainability became such a popular topic these days? What does it imply, and is there anything we as individuals can actually do to help? Especially now, with the negative impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on the environment, these questions are becoming more and more urgent.
Join us on the 7th to answer these questions and more in the form of a small interactive quiz, helpful tools, and importantly a conversation about sustainability, its importance, its implications, and what YOU can do!
Who will moderate the event?
The night will be moderated by Hannah, who majored in environmental studies and is advocating climate activism. She will give us an insight into the biggest climate challenges related to climate mitigation, climate adaptation, biodiversity recovery, and will introduce us to the topic of nature-based solutions. Further, she will zoom into the topic of green cities and how we can do our part in creating a greener environment.
In the second part, Kim (@shadesofkim) will talk about practical tips to implement a more sustainable lifestyle on a daily basis by introducing you to new eco-friendly life hacks, sustainable swaps, and zero-waste ideas that are easy to implement and can actually make a difference!
After the event, we will send you an extensive resource list with recommendations for podcasts, books & videos, recipes, ideas, and instructions for a more sustainable lifestyle.
The event is donation-based. All donations of the event will contribute towards planting local coconut trees in the big garden of the orphanage in Kon Tum. One tree costs 5€, and you can decide how many trees you would like to donate. After the event, we will let you know how many trees were donated and will upload pictures of the newly planted trees.
Why plant coconut trees?
The coconut can truly be seen as a blessing, given its versatile uses and benefits. Growing coconuts doesn’t require pesticides or herbicides, and coconuts are harvested by hand instead of machinery. The manure of the orphanage’s animals can be used in the early stages to promote growth
Teresa and Thín are planning on planting different kinds of plants and trees in the garden, which is relatively empty so far. Last month 30 banana trees were planted already. The plan is to also plant mango, durian, jackfruit, avocado and lemon trees. You can contribute by donating different kinds of trees here. This diversity is very important to prevent the development of a monoculture and to promote biodiversity. Luckily coconut trees also enable other plants and herbs to grow at the base of the tree that benefits both parties.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you on the 7th to talk about what really makes a difference! 😊
