Climate Solutions Class: ‘Change is Our Choice’

Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church, 10125 Lakehaven Court in Burke, is hosting a Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI) course on climate solutions titled “Change is Our Choice.” The course will help you determine your carbon footprint and create an action plan to reduce your impact. Then you can join others in planning actions to address local issues and to lobby lawmakers for broader changes. The course material is available in electronic format from NWEI for $27 (www.nwei.org/discussion-course-books).

Both a daytime and an evening class will be offered: Tuesdays at 7 p.m. beginning on March 1 or Thursdays at 1 p.m. beginning on March 3. The classes consist of four 1.5 hour sessions, starting the first week in March and ending the last week in March (skipping the spring break week of March 20 – 26).
