Youth Day Street Action

Posted by projects on Aug 13

Today, August 12th our EVS volunteers Shane and Sathya visited the lush green and busy park near the SCI offices to discover the thoughts of the beautiful people of Antwerp as part of International Youth Day 2016. The theme for this year is "Youth Leading Sustainability" with a special focus on the 11th Sustainable Development Goal "sustainable consumption and production". The volunteers talked to 6 different people all with a variety of responses and ideas on a broad range of topics on education, the environment and sustainability.

Pledge for the Planet

Posted by projects on Aug 08

That's it.

Today we've used as much from nature as our planet can renew in the whole year and it's only August.

We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can sequester. We must take immediate action and help reverse the trend of overshooting our planet’s resources. At the International Secretariat of SCI, we are planning to take a pledge to keep our office meat free! We are already on a mostly veggie based diet, but our decision would mean to keep our office meals, snacks and staff meeting lunches all meat free.
