Today's (Day 3) topic was about Climate Action. Participants were all very passionate about this topic as well as the other topics we discussed the past two days.
We shared our aspects about activism and slactivism, who should have the responsibility of climate change, is causing panic about climate change motivating or deliberating, and so on. Some of the ideas were same and some were not from my own perspective, but all of their voices were interesting and stimulating.
I believe, these brave conversations will gain persepctives and views for everyone who participated in the sessions including myself, about various issues and topics around the world that has to be discussed.
Todays Brave Discussion was on Climate Action. Unlike the other topics we are having for this years RSIC, we had to do a lot of problem solving. In my Baraza Group, everyone shared their aspects on Climate Action, and we came up with ideas on what we can do in our everyday lives to decrease greenhouse gasses. Also, people of the younger generation's voices are not heard as much compared to the voices of the older generation, so our group came up with ideas on how to make our voiced be heard instead of just making a noise on social media.
After todays sessions, I learned that the little things I am doing unconsciously might be releasing greenhouse gasses. I was shocked to hear that 10% of greenhouse gasses come from food waste. If every family did not waste food, then the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted will decrease by 10%. Also, from after listening to todays keynote speakers, it made me question my decisions of consuming. To make the products that we buy, a lot of greenhouse gasses might have been emitted into the atmosphere.
Overall, todays session motivated me to be more aware of the things I am doing that may be releasing greenhouse gasses.
