This interactive workshop will challenge each person to think about how they live in their surrounding environment and in particular their everyday habits that determine the standard of livelihood that their families have.
Never fear! However, this is not a purely educational session. Instead, Daily Dump will literally ask you to connect with nature and the men and women on either side of you, to smile and laugh, to talk and to discuss things that matter to everyone. Most of all, youll be learning just how much fun it can be to dive (not literally) into a pile of compost!
Objective 1. Educate working professionals on the positive and negative sides of the waste found in their everyday environment and what each person can do to create a better environment for everyone to live in. 2. Remove the regularly held belief that waste is dirty! 3. Highlight how each person can make a positive change that will improve their familys livelihoods in everyday scenarios. 4. Develop an understanding in each participants mind about the circular manner that nature works in, compared to linear man-made products that are harming the environment 5. Inspire each member of the team to attempt to connect the last link in the circular economy.
