You’re just 1 in 7 billion people in a very confusing time on Earth. Is it possible for you to make a difference? Is it worth trying? Rob Greenfield’s answer to these questions is a resounding yes and he is here to share why and how you can be the change you wish to see in the world.

Through his lead by example activism, Rob’s life has served as a wakeup call to millions of people and has changed the lives of many. Rob will share his unique projects from diving into thousands of grocery store dumpsters, to wearing his trash for 30 days, to living off the grid in a tiny house, to his most recent year of growing and foraging 100% of his food, all designed to wake people up and instigate change. 
Although Rob takes his life to the extreme, his message is one of moderation. His work creates a counterbalance to the consumeristic society we live in today and encourages mainstream media to report on important issues, while being able to use his attention grabbing stories.
You will walk away from this evening with a deeper understanding of the life that you are living and with solutions you can adapt to be the change you wish to see.

Rob’s talk will be followed by an apéro-dégustation not of food, but of a few small-scale local projects led by Lausanne citizens. You will learn and discuss about their ideas, debate about climate solutions, have a bite to eat, and if you want to, you can go give Rob a hug.
