In the second space, trainings and workshops totally dedicated to ecology will allow people to learn “forgotten practices” such as DIY sessions or sewing techniques. Conferences, screenings, debates and meet ups will be organized in order to get a better understanding of the Zero Waste topic and get some daily ecological habits back.
Finally, the third space, will host the Zero Waste team as well as ecological demonstrations for companies.
