IbN # 13 - Chris Roy & Jesse Jones

Show Notes

"There are only so many people you can convince just on the environmental arguments...you have to make it easy for people to make that transition" - Chris Roy

As promised, here is the list of all the good advice given by guests at the Influenced by Nature Launch Event. 

What advice or little hacks would you give to someone if they asked you how they could live more sustainably? 

That was one of the things that we asked the guests to pay forward at our launch event in September 2017. And they did! 

 

For this and the next episode, I have had the pleasure of sharing my microphone with Jesse Jones and Chris Roy who were both attending the event. They are currently studying for their Masters in climate change at the University of Copenhagen and each have their interests within climate change, natural systems, renewables and environmental politics. 

Join us for the first leg of a two-part special where Chris and Jesse are sharing their own thoughts and views on some of the advice given at the event. We come around areas such as the difficulty of spreading awareness about climate change, how you can balance eating less meat without having to leap to being a vegan and the problem with trashing electronics while giving a few tweaks on how to make them last longer. 

For a full list of the advice given at the event, look further down to the shownote section. If you have any good hacks of your own then please send me a comment. 

 

Hope you will enjoy the episode!
