REVIEW OF THE TALK:
“HOW TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT IN OUR DAILY LIVES”
This talk was given by Daniel López Marijuan on 24th April 2019 at the EOI Cádiz as part of our "Día de Acción comunitaria". Daniel López is an activist from the environmental group Ecologistas en Acción.
The main idea of the talk is that everybody should have responsible consumption because our planet Earth is not an inexhaustible source of resources. Let's get rid of the idea of "I shop, therefore I am".
He proposes we must use a clean production model, where there is less extraction of natural resources to produce waste that will then be reusable and recyclable. This means our economy will be circular.
There is a model against climate change that suggests five actions:
1. Live better with less things.
2. Local consumption.
3. Agroecology to cool the planet.
4. 100% renewable energy.
5. Better participation in our economy.
We have to fight for the system to change, rather than for climate change. We must apply the rules of the “six Rs”: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, RETHINK, RESTRUCTURE AND REDISTRIBUTE. This must be the model for responsible consumption.
He exposed different acts to prevent climate change in our daily lives, like: not buying new clothes, not buying items which are produced at the expense of others, or reading the Greenpeace guide that explains how you can buy items without toxic substances.
I would strongly recommend learning about this huge problem because we have the solution in our hands.
