I find that I think about things more—things I buy, things I eat, things I throw out. I see a much larger picture now, and I realize more than ever that I am a very important part of that picture.”
—Architect, Portland, Oregon

 

PURPOSE OF THE WORKSHOP

The term “sustainability” is used so freely, it’s difficult to understand what it can mean. At its essence, sustainability embodies hope for a healthy, just and bright future for us all. Choices for Sustainable Living provides participants with a powerful opportunity to explore sustainability more deeply and learn its unique meaning from individual, societal and global perspectives.

We will be using the inspiring workbook from the Northwest Earth Institute. It will be facilitated by an enthusiastic team and highly interactive for participants. You will discover new ways to make change more possible and powerful, both individually and in community.

The time to complete the course material in the two weeks between each session will be 2-3 hours, more or less, depending on personal circumstances.
