Green Saturday: World Environment Day

05 Jun , 10:00–11:30
International Youth Economic Forum
Pavilion G, conference hall G7

In this era of consumerism, the issue of damage to the environment, which can no longer be ignored, comes up more and more often. Many believe that only mass production can significantly impact environmental indicators, but that is not true at all. We are damaging our planet daily without giving a thought to the environmental impact our actions have. Could we minimize it? What do we want to leave behind us when we are gone and what can we leave? How can we preserve and augment our natural heritage (wealth) as we race after new technologies and profits? How can we interact with environment ‘safely’ (loss-free)? What is an environmentally conscious lifestyle? What environmental principles can help save the planet? What contribution can each of us make? Why is this topic becoming so popular all over the world? Is being environmentally-conscious fashionable?
