Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution
Tuesday | November 14, 2017 | 11:00 am — Monday | January 15, 2018 | 12:15 pm
Concerned about global warming, Dr. Peter Kalmus cut his emissions to below a tenth of the US average, and found that this made his life more interesting, satisfying, and joyful — not less. He started riding a bike, driving on vegetable oil, and engaging in “slow travel” without airplanes. He switched to “freegan vegetarianism” and grows much of his own food. He has simplified and decarbonized his life, and he has never looked back.
He now does everything he can to spread this message and to help humanity transition away from fossil fuels. He believes that the problem is not only technological or scientific, but also spiritual: it calls humans to set aside the notion that we are exceptional within the web of life, and instead to live, gratefully, in alignment with the biosphere.Visit Event Website >>
