Book Club "Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things"
It will last from 6 December 2021 - 28 February 2022
How to join? Pick up a copy of the book and join our Telegram group [ https://t.me/+HOmM59Lbt0M2NDc8 ].
During the meetings and in the Telegram group, we will exchange our impressions from the book and talk about ways we can incorporate lessons learned into our AEGEE and day-to-day life.
About the book:
"Reduce, reuse, recycle," urge environmentalists; in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. But as architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart point out in this provocative, visionary book, such an approach only perpetuates the one-way, "cradle to grave" manufacturing model, dating to the Industrial Revolution, that creates such fantastic amounts of waste and pollution in the first place. Why not challenge the belief that human industry must damage the natural world? In fact, why not take nature itself as our model for making things? A tree produces thousands of blossoms in order to create another tree, yet we consider its abundance not wasteful but safe, beautiful, and highly effective.
