Cultivating a Sustainable Lifestyle
“Cultivating a Sustainable Lifestyle” teaches participants about the challenges Earth’s systems face in the Anthropocene, the geological epoch where human activity has caused changes at the planetary scale. If we don’t stop pushing the Earth past its limits, we’ll stay on course to lose 1 million species, deplete groundwater, acidify and deoxygenate our oceans, degrade our soil, and raise temperatures past the climate niche habitable to humans. Our personal choices matter, and collectively they have a huge impact on the earth. Participants will learn how to cultivate a new and aspirational, sustainable lifestyle by taking high impact actions, both big and small. This workshop is divided into two parts and covers everything from sustainable yards to zero food waste kitchens to zero greenhouse gas emissions living.
