Cool the Earth Workshop: Lose 5000 Pounds (of Carbon) in 30 Days
The average American generates 55,000 pounds of CO2 annually, whereas typical Swedes emit only about 15,000 pounds of CO2 while maintaining an equal standard of living.

The CONVENIENT TRUTH is that YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE with a few changes!

Climate change is very much a local issue with global reach. The causes of global warming come in large part from everyday activities where individual actions account for almost 50 percent of a community's emissions. A one-degree rise in average temperature can result in extreme temperature-related disasters.

Join us for an engaging Cool World Caf, a powerful, new social change technology that enables us to experience the spirit of community. Interact with friends and neighbors in frank and open conversation that helps us reflect deeply on what global warming means to each of us as individuals and society.

Learn about the Low Carbon Diet, which is grounded in over two decades of environmental behavior change research. This program offers much more than a list of eco-friendly actions. It walks you through every step of the process, from calculating your current CO2 footprint to tracking your progress. By making simple changes to actions you take every day, you can learn how to reduce your annual household CO2 output by at least 15 percent. If youre really dedicated, you can also become carbon neutral.

With the Low Carbon Diet you will learn how to:

Calculate your CO2 footprint with a carbon calculator
Create cool household systems that save the Earth while saving you money
Take on cool lifestyle practices that reduce CO2 emissions without cramping your style
Purchase carbon offsets to become carbon neutral
Form a Low Carbon Diet EcoTeam with friends, colleagues, co-workers or neighbors to reduce and offset CO2 output
