The Green Week Debate - Thurs, 6 June at 1pm

Worm Farms Should be Mandatory in Every Kitchen

UTS Green and UTS Library will be hosting an exciting Green Week Debate to celebrate World Environment Day.

World Environment Day celebrations have been an annual event since 1972. It is a vehicle through which the world is made aware of the environment and encouragement is made to stimulate positive action. It is on this day that as individuals we are made aware of our responsibilities to this planet and that we have the power to become agents for change.

World Environment Day is a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations.

The theme for 2013 is: Think.Eat.Save.

Think.Eat.Save is an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages you to reduce your foodprint. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), every year 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted. At the same time, 1 in every 7 people in the world go to bed hungry and more than 20,000 children under the age of 5 die daily from hunger.

So to celebrate this day and in line with the theme we will be hosting a debate between the Institute for Sustainable Futures and the UTS Debating Society exploring the topic Worm Farms Should Be Mandatory In Every Kitchen.

So bring your lunch and join us for what promises to be a high spirited and entertaining debate.

DATE: Thursday, 6 June
TIME: 1pm – 2pm
VENUE: Learning Commons, Level 3, City Campus Library

This is a free event.
All are welcome.
No RSVP or booking is required.

UTS: Green Week is from 3 to 7 June 2013, see the program for other events.

I'm not sure if a worm farm

I'm not sure if a worm farm would be suitable for families as the box doesn't appear to have a child / pet - proof lid.
