Learn to lead an eco-friendly urban or suburban lifestyle while envisioning a world transformed. Presentations, demonstrations and interactive exhibits designed to help people gain a well-rounded understanding of the many ways we can carry out an eco-friendly lifestyle in Chicago will be on display from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., November 16, at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Optional networking will be available from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Sponsored by Greenheart Transforms, event presenters will include Jamie Hayes, owner and designer of Production Mode; Emmanuel Pratt, director of the Aquaponics Center at Chicago State University; Ken Dunn, founder of The Resource Center and City Farm; and Emanuel Kuntzelman, founder and president of Greenheart International. Demonstrations will be made by Edible Alchemy and others. Locally-made organic vegan and vegetarian lunch options are included.
Attendees will learn about local ventures in urban farming, sustainable fashion, DIY products, zero waste initiatives, responsible travel, health and well-being and community advocacy.
