Climate Change: Alternatives to Help Make a Difference
August 30 & 31 | 9 - 4
Welcome to the Anthropocene - the geologic era where humans have significantly impacted Earth. In this era of climate change, how might our living habits stay the same or change? We’ll explore what types of very doable lifestyle changes we can make that reduce greenhouse gases, how to select an electric vehicle, reduce the use of plastics, guide us toward more sustainable transportation and energy, conserve water, and grow our own healthy organic food. Before class everyone will have the opportunity to calculate their “Sustainability Score” - an original methodology that helps us look at the big picture and make informed decisions as we move ahead in life.
