Free workshop will offer help in both dealing with climate disruptions/crises in our lives and give participants hands-on experience with Steve Gates' carbon footprint/action calculator (climatecalculator.org). Kim Stoner will delve into how we can live emotionally, psychologically and spiritually with the climate disruption that is already hitting the world hard. She will use a framework called “Deep Adaptation” to help us prepare as individuals and as a community.
Steve Gates will give specific actions you can take - to save money, or help save the planet, or both. His calculator can help each person/family figure out the best way to take action. Everyone is encouraged to try out the calculator in advance. You'll need a computer or mobile device, and your recent utility bills (previous month's gas and electric, plus a year's worth of data on oil bills). Steve will answer questions and help you figure out next steps while tracking your progress over time.
