Earth Justice Network’s Low carbon diet workshop Seeks Eco-teams for Regional Sustainability

This event, which is co-sponsored by the Appalachian Ohio Group of the Sierra Club, UpGrade Athens County, and Rural Action, hopes to bring faith and action together to reach our common goal of lowering our carbon footprint

Athens, OH, July 29, 2016– The Earth Justice Network (EJN), an open collaborative effort between Athens area faith-based organizations and churches with area nonprofit organizations will be hosting the “Low Carbon Diet” workshop on Saturday, August 13, from 1-3 PM at Christ the King church on 75 Stewart Street in Athens, Ohio. The EJN is asking congregations and community members to attend with the anticipation to form “eco-teams” as a way to challenge themselves and their neighbors to reduce their carbon footprint by reducing their overall energy usage and enacting sustainable habits. Attendees can also share best practices for the diet plan.

The event will follow the well-known World Café style of interaction in which attendees will be able to discuss their fears and hopes in a carbon-heavy world. Annie Haseley, the granddaughter of Earth Justice member Jeanne Haseley, will be performing a play about climate change at the workshop. A light lunch will be served before the workshop from 12-1 PM at Christ the King. After the workshop, a fair trade store will be open for interested buyers. If you want to hear more about the workshop or the climate change play, listen for the upcoming Conversation from Studio B on WOUB 1340 AM (Air time: July 31 at 1 P.M) or visit the Facebook event page at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1623907677922102/
