Biodiversity is often mentioned in connection with the ongoing mass extinction. But as you know, it’s not just about the Amazon rainforest or protected areas: biodiversity starts at your doorstep.
This week, we’re switching to compost! Composting means reducing your waste by an average of 30%, taking out the bin less often and giving back to the earth what is supposed to be there. Compost is an excellent contribution to the garden, as is the “tea” produced by earthworms.
In April, we are in the bathroom. So let’s take a look in our shelves and in our showers. Even if we are not interested in beauty products, it is always interesting to know the composition of our products
The end of March is here, and we all want to get away for a while. Holidays are one of the most important pollution items, especially in rich countries like Luxembourg.
Since the beginning of the month, we’ve been suggesting that you abandon the car for more gentle and/or shared mobility. Our aim has not escaped you: to encourage you to discover your neighbourhood, even if it means getting a bit lost sometimes. What did you discover? A bit of sad grass, a little corner to read, a passage that lacks flowers, a wall that is sad in its whiteness?
At the beginning of the month, we suggested that you opt for green transport. This week, we’re taking it to the next level: no car for a week!
March is the time to prepare your seedlings so that you can take over your neighbourhood with plants in a few weeks time.
This month we look at how we move around on a daily basis. It’s no secret that traffic jams are heavy in Luxembourg, and that the private car is not an ecological model.
This edition of the Transition Days is certainly more focused on the virtual than on the real, but we hope that it allowes you to see the large number of citizen initiatives that exist in Luxembourg!
Throughout the Transition Days, we discussed many topics. Without a doubt, you would like to learn more about some of them?
Your challenge this week is to delve into one of these topics that has made an impression on you.
There is a lot of culture in degrowth! This week we want to emphasise that the world we are campaigning for is not a dull and sad world. On the contrary, the post-transition world is rich, festive and artistic.
Do you know anything about fake news? No, not a yelling orange man! I’m talking about information that spreads faster than the light, and which is often completely false.
This week, we turn to others: take a look at what you know how to do and what you would like to make available to others. It can be a skill (DIY, computer, cooking, …), a language, a little time at your disposal…
Have you ever heard of mental load? This notion, which first appeared in the 1980s and regained popularity a few years ago, refers to the constant and unavoidable work of managing, organising and planning the smooth running of the home.
Does the impact of digital technology mean anything to you? Statistics have been coming out one after the other for a few years now and they are quite chilling.
The end of the year and the time for balance sheets is approaching. This one is not the most pleasant one but we all do it from time to time: this week we do our accountings.
When you search for information on the internet (the upcoming Transition Days programme, for example…), you type a few keywords in a window, hit enter and a list of results appears.
December, the illuminations in town, the christmas atmosphere slowly settling in… you too have gifts to give? This year, let’s choose together to make gifts that really make sense.
Have you ever wanted to make yourself a raclette and ended up buying a machine that now sleeps in your cupboard as you rarely use it? Have you ever needed a drill to install a single shelf in your home? Why not share all these items?
Have you heard of programmed obsolescence? It’s what makes your printer designed to print X pages and not one more, your phone doesn’t work after two years, and your washing machine will never last as long as the one your grandparents had.
Do you know the overflowing bin in the kitchen that needs to be changed all the time? The one that smells bad and fills up like magic? This week, we’re tackling that bin.
« Eat seasonal fruit and vegetables. » | Seasonality is disappearing from our habits: all year round we have beautiful red tomatoes, well graded and plump on the supermarket shelves.
« One month without meat » | In October we are in the kitchen. Let’s talk about food! Food has a key role to play in the development of a fairer model of society.
Challenge September | “I measure my ecological footprint.” In September, we propose to lay the foundations for the next 9 months together. This year, we are going to talk about resilience, and this theme has never been more necessary! This month we propose only one thing to do, but we invite you to do it…
