Alpinism & Consumerism: Montanismo y Consumismo no es lo mismo

April 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Hosted by the North Cascades Institute

This is an online class.

Instructor Stuart Vazquez

Class Tuition: $5

Join us for a conversation with Stuart Vázquez, founder and director of the Eco-Lógica Magazine educational project. For more than 20 years, Stuart has followed the solid waste route to understand how to reduce waste generation. As a mountaineer and environmentalist, Stuart includes proposals in his presentations that invite us to reflect and learn alternatives to reduce waste generation and its connection with the natural areas that we enjoy so much when we practice outdoor activities.

This conversation, primarily shared in English, will have Spanish weaved throughout so that both language speakers have a great experience. We will find that the connection with nature and outdoor activities is something personal that only you can experience in your own way and at your own pace, without the need to spend large amounts of money. We will learn alternatives that can help us to reduce waste generation, save resources, and enjoy nature.

We will talk about the way in which solid waste, as indicators of our consumption habits, can give us ideas to reduce consumerism, modify our lifestyles and move towards a more sustainable system that can help us reduce the impact of solid waste in the environment; one of the causes of climate change.

If you can’t make this specific date or time, you can still register and we will send you a link to view the class on your own time! All registrants will have access to the class recording for a limited time after the program.

Acompáñanos a una conversación con Stuart Vázquez, creador y director del proyecto educativo Eco-Lógica Magazine. Por más de 20 años Stuart ha seguido la ruta de los desechos sólidos para entender cómo poder disminuir la generación de basura. Como montañista y ambientalista, Stuart incluye en sus presentaciones propuestas que invitan a reflexionar y aprender alternativas para disminuir la generación de residuos y su conexión con las áreas naturales que tanto disfrutamos cuando realizamos actividades al aire libre.

En esta conversación encontrarás que la conexión con la naturaleza a través de las actividades al aire libre es algo personal que solo tú puedes experimentar a tu forma y a tu ritmo, sin la necesidad de gastar grandes cantidades de dinero. Aprenderemos alternativas que nos ayuden a ahorrar recursos, generar menos desechos y disfrutar de la naturaleza.

Hablaremos de la forma en que los desechos, como indicadores de nuestros hábitos de consumo nos pueden enseñar el camino para disminuir el consumismo, modificar nuestros estilos de vida y avanzar hacia un sistema más sustentable que pueda ayudarnos a disminuir el impacto de los desechos sólidos en el medio ambiente; una de las causas del cambio climático.
