At the International Food Festival, our focus was on promoting ecological awareness and implementing sustainable practices. Our booth served as a place for educating attendees on ecological initiatives, while our active involvement in recycling for the event highlighted our commitment to environmental responsibility.
This project consists of organizing a remote biodiversity negotiation simulation led by the eco-delegates of AEFE institutions in the ZAN.
Each institution in the zone: Delegation • will be assigned a country (and potentially a non-state actor) and will need to familiarize themselves with the context and issues through research, • will need to form a delegation of eco-delegates representing this country during the negotiation simulation, which will bring together all participating institutions. List of countries considered: Australia, Germany, South Africa, Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, China, Costa Rica, United States, France, Indonesia, Japan, Madagascar, Maldives. Non-state actors: WWF, IUCN, indigenous peoples and First Nations, agro-food or oil companies, global youth network.
Thanks to the hard work of a group of students who diligently cleaned the bird feeders, they are now fully stocked with seeds. We have restarted this year's ornithological monitoring program, where we'll identify the various bird species frequenting the feeders. Additionally, we'll be ensuring a regular replenishment of the food supply. Starting this week, students will be able to sign up to help out with the project. We're also calling on a small group of eco-conscious students to join in the waste collection and sorting efforts. We have the necessary tools, including tongs and buckets, available in the greenhouse.
Stay tuned for more updates on our ongoing sustainability efforts!
