Metro Public Works and Urban Green Lab are partnering on a new educational series “Sustainable in the City: Thinking Upstream” focused on how Nashvillians can better reduce, reuse, and recycle and live more sustainably.
Hosted by Metro Public Works’ Waste Reduction Program Manager Jenn Harrman and Urban Green Lab’s Sustainability Education Manager Patrick King, Sustainable in the City: Thinking Upstream will feature interviews, webinars, and panel discussions with Nashville’s top experts in all areas of waste and sustainability.
The spring harvest season is near and many farmers will begin offering sign-ups for their CSA’s. Food production is responsible for one-quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and if we're going to get serious about fighting climate change, supporting our local food systems is of key importance. In this episode we are speaking with a local chef to answer why eating locally is not only super cool but a key component to living a more sustainable life.
This event is free and open to the public.
