You know there's a lot you can do to fight climate change but you're just not sure where to begin. Or maybe you've already got a small footprint and you're ready to take community-level action. Benefit from the support, information exchange, and camaraderie of your fellow community members as well as the resources offered by the Ecology Center, all while reducing your carbon footprint, getting free membership to the Ecology Center if you haven't already been a member, saving money, and meeting your neighbors.

Participate in an upcoming Climate Change Action Workshop series at the Ecology Center:
Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30pm: March 23, 30, April 6, 13

How do the Climate Change Action Workshops run?
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. Participation is 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?
Write to debra [at] ecologycenter.org and pass on this invitation to your friends and colleagues. For more information, visit http://www.ecologycenter.org

Interested in having the Ecology Center facilitate a workshop series in your community?
Invite the Ecology Center to facilitate a Climate Change Action Group at your workplace, congregation, in your neighborhood, or with another community group. If you have approximately 10 committed participants, we'll lead a workshop for you free of charge. Contact debra [at] ecologycenter.org

Background on the Ecology Center
