Consumerism Workshop

November 22, 2023 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We constantly hear messages that tell us that buying more things will make us happier. However, our culture’s insatiable appetite for MORE STUFF usually has the opposite effect. This cycle of buying more to feel happier and feeling unhappy with what we have because we think we need more is especially dangerous when we’re spending money we can’t afford to spend.

This Financial Empowerment workshop tackles how we can each manage being consumerists, and will talk more about consumerism’s impact on us and the environment.  Join us to learn how to protect yourself from the manipulation of advertising and the financial pitfalls consumerism creates.

Presented online in partnership with North Vancouver City Library.

This workshop takes place via Zoom. Registration closes at 6 pm on November 22. You will receive the link to join one hour before the workshop’s start time.
