Sustainable is Possible: creating low carbon, high quality lives… together.

Academic Building A G008, 5:05 PM
The presentation focuses on how we can achieve the goal of living on 10% of the resources of the average American while living a high quality life. This number is critical because it matches current estimates from the scientific community for the goals we need to achieve to live sustainably and head off the worst effects of climate disruption. Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage (www.dancingrabbit.org) is achieving that goal, and thus is a timely, relevant and needed model as our society struggles to figure out what a livable, low-carbon future might look like. The talk also includes a section about climate disruption and our choices for how to respond to this most pressing of environmental and social problems.
