Workshop |
The No Impact Experiment is a one-week carbon cleanse, inspired by the book and film No Impact Man. It's a chance for you to see what a difference no-impact living can have on your quality of life. It's not about giving up creature comforts but an opportunity for you to test whether the modern "conveniences" you take for granted are actually making you happier or just eating away at your time and money. Participants come together every evening to share their experiences from the day, meet guest speakers, and decide on/plan a group action for the Give Back day. Nightly meetings and group blog create a way for the participants to support each other and post experiences, questions, and challenges. Facilitated by teachers Tamar Samir & Ximena Savitch. Guest speakers: Colin Beavan, aka No Impact Man (pictured), and Chef Kevin Archer will give a food demo on local food.
