There is no charge for attending this cafe. Please feel free to drop by and enjoy the café on your way home from work.


Topic of this café:

We consume energy when we go shopping by car, cook food on a stove, and use electric appliances. However, food and drink have no plugs and don't require electricity. Does this mean they don't consume energy? Participants will take a look at the relationship between food consumption and the environment.
