Shifting to a plant-rich diet can reduce one-fifth of global emissions and tends to be healthier, leading to lower rates of chronic disease.
Share your favorite read, movie or podcast related to sustainability and why you like it.
Collective knowledge sharing builds learning culture and brings more joy. It is also a sustainable way of creating new knowledge!
Thinking before we print not only helps to reduce paper but also helps to save our forest. We need our forests (trees) to help mitigate climate change.

Move towards a zero-waste lifestyle by reducing the use of packaging, especially single use packaging, and thereby also reducing environmental impact and resource use.

Taking eco-friendly transportation helps to conserve precious resources such as fuel and improve the air quality of our environment as well!
