November Events:

The Sustainability Project and Green Energy Options are co-sponsoring a four-week Vermont Earth Institute discussion course entitled- “Global Warming: Changing Course.”   The goals of the course are: to explore personal values and habits as they relate to climate change, to understand the history and science of global warming and to empower individuals to take action to curb global warming.  Participants will receive reading materials at the first meeting on Thursday, November 15th from 6:00-7:30 pm.   Four additional meetings will take place on consecutive Thursdays beginning on November 29th.   

The course will be held in Keene at the wheelchair accessible Green Energy Options Store, 79 Emerald Street (next to the coal silos) on Thursdays,  There is no charge for the course, but there is a minimal course book fee.
