What if the lifestyle changes needed to reduce our environmental impacts actually made our lives more meaningful, rewarding and fun?
On Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m., join World Community for its final night of public events in the series The Climate Crisis: Adaptation, Activism and Resilience at the Upper Native Sons Hall.
Organized as a bazaar or marketplace of ideas, Opportunities for Personal and Community Action will feature presentations and displays by local change-makers – businesses, non-profits, and individuals – who offer concrete ways to reduce our carbon footprint and enhance resilience at the family and community level.
Learn how to add renewable energy to your home, reduce food and packaging waste, invest in planet-healing ventures or thrive by living in cohousing. Have a good idea? Audience members will be encouraged to share their own suggestions and aspirations for changes that we can undertake now.
In the coming decades, it is anticipated that climate instability will affect every aspect of our lives. Learning what we can do now to mitigate our impacts is crucial; building the capacity to adapt and thrive in a changing world is equally critical. Perhaps most important is seizing the opportunity this change presents us to begin to re-orient our lives towards the kinds of positive changes that will bring deeper life satisfaction and greater connection with our community.
Admission is free. Everyone is welcome. For more information contact 250-650-8694.
