Zero Waste Focus Group

November 4, 2019 Zero Waste Focus Group

Are you interested in addressing your waste footprint? Want to share your ideas about waste reduction in the Yukon?

 

Zero Waste Yukon is hosting a focus group this November to gather unique perspectives on living waste-free in the Yukon and to help identify barriers to Zero Waste that currently exist. Our intention is to foster a greater sense of community and connect like-minded individuals.

Meetings will introduce common Zero Waste issues, as well as hold space for discussion and reflection. Participants will be supported in completing “weekly challenges”, such as a personal waste audit, or a plastic-free grocery shop. By participating in the focus group, individuals can learn conscious consumer practices that are realistic and effective, as well as share their ideas or solutions.

Perspectives and results discussed in the focus group meetings will be compiled into a final report, which will serve as an informative resource for Zero Waste Yukon going forward.

We recognize minimizing waste is no easy undertaking. Whether you are already committed to reducing your waste, or are simply curious to learn more – your perspective is welcome and valued! 

We will be hosting sessions each Thursday this November, from 5:00-7:30. A meal will be provided, and families are welcome. We hope to begin promptly at 5:30, but come as early as 5:00 to get some food and mingle! Meetings are scheduled to wrap up at 7:00. Participants are welcome to stick around afterwards to continue the conversation and ask questions.
