What can we, as a community, do to reduce waste and lower our carbon footprint? In this talk Paddy Johnson will discuss the necessity of building socially responsible infrastructure that supports arts workers while minimizing the waste that threatens our health, our livelihoods and that of our children. The talk looks at programs with a track record of success and how to replicate them.
