MVB's Sustainable Living Webinar: The Road to Healthier and More Sustainable Living-Some Practical and Achievable Steps

SUSTAINABILITY | 30 July 2021


MVB Indonesia was excited to present their Sustainable Living Webinar which feature well known organisations in sustainability who can guide you, professionally and personally on a new path: Waste4Change, Parongpong, Evoware and Bike2Work on sustainable living.

This webinar was designed to directly increase your understanding of practical things you can do - NOW – to increase your personal sustainability and live a healthier lifestyle, and as a result take these ideas on to your residential and business communities.  It was especially relevant to people who have already taken some sustainability steps and are looking to deepen sustainability efforts by linking with expert organisations that can help them on their path and get them up to speed on:
- recycling waste and composting,  at home or in the office
- understanding sustainable materials especially those made from waste , 
- replacing plastics in their household utensils, 
-  and getting to grips with cycling! 

And once you have got the bug it will be easy to pass on to other citizens interested in jump starting sustainability in their community and adopt it for everyday lifestyle!
This webinar was about getting to grips with things that CAN BE DONE by you and your family or colleagues, and changing your role from passive (‘yes that’s a good idea’) to active (‘actually I’m already doing that ‘) Here are the excellent expert speakers who led the discussions.
