    Ideas to Action: Responsible Consumption and Production with GEMS World Academy Chicago

    Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018 1:00 - 3:00 PM @ GEMS World Academy Chicago
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    In 2015, the United Nations set forth 17 sustainable development goals to help end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change by the year 2030. Join GEMS World Academy Chicago for a look at goal #12, responsible production and consumption, and generate ideas for a possible solution to a related real-world problem. Learn more about the sustainable development goals initiative and discuss its possible impact, and hear from first grade students about their explorations into the problem of waste in Chicago. Participate in a guided brainstorm to help find solutions, then build working prototypes in their Design Lab. Come away with a better understanding of how we can approach worldwide problems through solutions in our own communities.
