Cooler, Smarter Workshop
We are in the planning stages of this 7-session workshop based on the Union of Concerned Scientists’ book Cooler Smarter that will take place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Each of the sessions will provide practical guidance on reducing our footprint at home in 5 areas:
- Transportation (Driving down emissions)
- Home heating and cooling
- Electrical ese in the home
- Our diets (A low-carbon diet)
- The things we buy
These workshops will be facilitated by 7 different CWP Partners at 7 different churches.
Our hope is that this workshop will be replicated in other regions all over the U.S. and Canada.
Stay tuned for more details!
