The first half of the event will be about how you can decrease your carbon footprint by your daily choices. The speaker will be Ivi Kubica, a lifelong advocate for the natural environment. Ivi graduated from University of California in Berkeley with B.S. in Environmental Economics and Policy, magna cum laude. In her presentation, you will learn practical ways you can reduce your carbon footprint for a healthier planet.
Climate Action Maps – Climate-Friendly Mountain Home Project https://www.climateactionmaps.org/The second half of the presentation will be focused on Climate Action Maps, and how you can create your own. Climate Action Maps were developed by Dr. Cat Russell (they/them) in 2002. Cat loves the cool climate of the Colorado foothills where they live, and their connection with the wildlife, trees, and outdoor activities there inspired them to move toward a zero-carbon lifestyle as quickly as possible, and to enable others to do so as well. Cat first used a climate action map to reduce their own family’s carbon footprint, and in the years since has shared this simple but powerful tool with their high school climatology students, friends, activists, and other people making lifestyle changes through Action Map trainings. As part of implementing their own climate action steps, Cat has changed careers and now works as a PV design engineer, with over 500 kW of installed PV systems.
There will be time allotted for questions from the audience.
