Living Fully with a Low-Carbon Footprint

Location

Cremona 101

Keywords

Day of Common Learning

Description

The average American produces approximately 4 to 5 times as much carbon dioxide as the average global citizen, yet people around the world aspire to live the American lifestyle. How can we rise to the challenge of climate change and serve as a model for sustainable prosperity? In this session we will take an honest, quantitative look at our own consumption. We will see how our carbon footprints are deeply woven into the very fabric of our culture. We will explore both the utility and the limitations of common strategies for sustainable living such as vegan diets, buying locally, carbon offsets, as well as using “green” products and electric vehicles. We will then share ideas for living full and prosperous lives while dramatically reducing our carbon consumption, with emphasis on ways to create low-carbon and nutritious meals.
