Do you ever feel helpless to affect the changes needed to combat climate change? So do we! But there are things that we can do as individuals and families and we can do as a community to make a tangible difference. Highland’s Environmental Action Team has organized a special Wednesday night service on September 19, 6:10-7:10 p.m., to teach practical ways to live more sustainably.
You will have three options for breakout learning sessions:
- Electric Cars: Sunny Gulati of EVolve Kentucky will discuss the joys, challenges and economics of using electric vehicles and the rapid growth of the EV market.
- Solar Panels: Tim Darst of Kentucky Interfaith Power & Light will share lessons learned from other faith communities that have adopted solar panels and his personal experience with the economics of household solar.
- Household Waste Reduction: Lynn Quire of Zero Waste Ventures will host a brief workshop on how to reduce your household waste with lots of tips, recipes and product reviews.
You will have the opportunity to attend any two out of the three sessions. We hope you can make it! And don’t forget to make your dinner reservation ahead of time by emailing Deb Ackerson by Tuesday, September 18, at 11:00 a.m. This event is free, but note that the cost of the meal is $7.00 for adults.
