The coronavirus outbreak poses many challenges for our way of life, including our efforts in sustainability to protect the environment.

Join us for an insightful conversation with Matthew Leddy, BA 18, from the Zero Waste Concordia program, on the environmental impact of the pandemic. From thoughts on how to reduce waste to the possible long-term effects — including positives that can be taken from the pandemic — he will take questions and share research, eco-friendly tips and strategies for responsible living.
