Is it possible to reduce your carbon footprint by simply increasing your daily physical activity? The Paris Accord emphasizes that we need to curb emissions output throughout society, and increasing our own physical activity is a great way to start. Join Dr. Robin Mellecker, PhD and Health & Fitness Research Consultant, for a breakfast session to discuss the idea of sustainable physical activity and exercise habits. What is "sustainable physical activity", how do we engage in these habits, and what are the possible effects on ourselves as individuals and as part of society? In addition to a lively, research-based discussion, Robin will also guide participants through action steps to improve everyday habits which lead to a more sustainable, healthy life. Tickets include breakfast and coffee.
