Being Sustainable(ish)

Updated Friday, 27th November 2020
Jen Gale explores the idea of leading a sustainable(ish) lifestyle.

In this session, we were joined by Jen Gale, author of The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide and founder of Sustainable(ish), a community interest company that aims to show that anyone can get involved and make positive changes that are manageable in their lives to help the environment.

Jen's inspiring session is all about ‘progress not perfection’ – the idea being that a lot of people making a manageable change and doing them well, has greater impact than a few people doing them perfectly. Jen's own words: 'We're often short on time, energy, and sometimes sanity, and to top it off eco-anxiety is creeping in. You want easy ideas for doable changes you can make, not another ball to juggle, labelled "save the planet"'.
