Roasting coffee… not the Earth
Many of us rely on a strong brew to get us through the day, but what does coffee have to do with wildlife conservation and climate change? Wake up to the links between the biodiversity and climate crises at this event, where we discuss the environmental impact of the cultivation and consumption of coffee.
In Southeast Asia, demand for kopi luwak – highly prized coffee made of cherries partially digested by civets – is threatening the welfare of these animals; while forests in many parts of the world are often razed to grow coffee plants. The good news is, there is a way to enjoy a cuppa joe without costing the Earth. Find out how at this event organised by the NUS Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions and The Social Space.
