Spill the Beans! Webinar
This 2-day symposium was inspired by the intent to bring awareness to the detrimental impacts on the environment and countless victims of animal exploitation as well as unethical & unsustainable working practices.
The Spill the Beans! Webinar is scheduled to occur on the first weekend of April, 4/3/21 - 4/4/21 via Zoom. The project members will post a series of infographics highlighting sustainable and ethical living choices prior to the event. The webinar will start off with a screening of Earthlings, a documentary narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. After a brief reflection and discussion of the film, a panel of speakers will present on sustainability and animal rights and the project team will provide additional resources. Throughout the following week, this group will introduce a sustainability challenge (with prizes!) to encourage the community to practice more compassionate and environmentally-friendly choices.
The members of this group recognized the injustices surrounding this everyday exploitation and aspire to shed light on this issue. It is imperative to make ethical choices in the present to ensure a safer environment for sentient beings.
