PEEC News:
The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is bringing another discussion course developed by the Northwest Earth Institute to Los Alamos. 
Choices for Sustainable Living is an eight-week discussion course where participants will explore sustainability and learn its unique meaning from individual, societal, and global perspectives. This course meets 6-7:30 p.m., Wednesdays at the Los Alamos Nature Center starting Jan. 10 and running through Feb. 28. This free course is open to the public. Space is limited, and advance registration is required.
At its essence, sustainability embodies hope for a healthy, just, and bright future for us all. The course focuses on envisioning sustainability – what would a sustainable world look like? And how can we create it together? Choices for Sustainable Living helps participants discover new ways of living and together, make change more possible and powerful.
This eight-week course follows the book Choices for Sustainable Living from the Northwest Earth Institute. Similar to a book club, each week participants will read articles from the book and then meet to discuss the content, relate the information to their personal lives, their community, and broader scopes, and brainstorm ideas and actions to take. Course participants also will have the option to interact through a special version of the EcoChallenge, an online platform that will provide additional resources, connection to local and worldwide community, suggestions for actions, and real-time information on environmental impacts.
This discussion group will meet at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road. Participation is free, but participants must pre-register and purchase the book. For more information about this and other PEEC programs, or to register for this course, please visit, email or call 505.662.0460.
