Living the Change Weekly Discussion Group
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, May 9, 2023
Scientists tell us that we must reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030. That may seem like a very high hurdle. But, it translates to only a 7%/year reduction, starting now. Participants in this course will leave with a plan for at least their first 7% reduction, and knowledge of how to find the other 43%. Many participants have found easy, cost-effective reductions of 20 – 45%. The course was developed in response to the Walk on Earth Gently multifaith statement. Inspired by religious teachings to turn away from consumerism & to seek balanced relationships with all people and the planet, Walk on Earth Gently invites you into a journey of Living the Change that the world needs. This program focuses on making personal lifestyle changes in three areas: transportation, energy, and food but will be customized for participants such that additional topics may be covered. Anticipated schedule/topics to be covered are given below. Join us in accepting the Walk on Earth Gently invitation and committing to a sustainable lifestyle, via a weekly online discussion group. Can’t make it every week? Join us as you are able. Are you ready to commit to a more sustainable lifestyle?
