Sustainability also Begins at Home, Experts Say

LONDON, 23 January 2011 – The Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework conference, taking place this 17th and 18th of March at the Grocers Hall in London, will attract an international host of speakers from across disciplines to explore how housework carried out to professional standards can help to create sustainable societies through the individuals it touches in the home.

Speakers from different fields will explore how being raised in a home with sustainable practices results in adults who are able to contribute positively to their immediate community and wider society.

The conference will also address how sustainable practices in energy consumption and waste production can have a cultural and educational impact in teaching new generations responsible sustainable practices. The Sustainable Living: Professional Approaches to Housework conference aims to promote expertise and excellence in training in all the occupations related to work in the home as a vehicle for the quality of life for present and future generations.
