How do the Climate Change Action Groups work?
During four weekly sessions, you will join with a small group of Bay Area residents to calculate your carbon footprint, create a measurable personal action plan to reduce your footprint and make substantive changes in your community.
In addition to inviting you to join a group at the Ecology Center, we will provide no-cost facilitation at your workplace, congregation, neighborhood, or with another community group to which you belong. Climate Change Action Groups can be held as brown bag lunch series or as evening or weekend gatherings. Workplace groups give participants the opportunity to collectively strategize how to make effective organizational changes to reduce the business's footprint, including consideration of how energy and resources are used around the workplace, how employees travel to and from work, and the footprint of the goods and services the business creates, among other issues.
Participation and facilitation services are free. A $10 fee (at cost) will be charged for the Low Carbon Diet workbook. No one turned away for lack of funds.
How do I sign up?
