THE NEW TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE: ECOLOGY, ECONOMY, EQUALITY HOW OUR ECONOMY AND SOCIETY WILL BENEFIT FROM “GOING GREEN
Our May AAUW branch meeting will take place on May 6 at 6 p.m. at the Greenburgh Public Library.
Please come to hear a very passionate and knowledgeable expert discuss the environmental issues we are all facing. Discover what her role is at the Greenburgh Nature Center and in the Westchester community. Hear and see what actions we can all take. The realities of climate change are challenging us all to live more sustainably—but what does that really mean? There’s a new consciousness emerging that in addressing environmental problems, we can also build a stronger, more resilient and inclusive economy, and communities where people are more deeply connected and engaged. Learn about some of the new technologies, ideas and business opportunities that are rising up to create a new “green” economy that will enable us to conserve energy, protect our water, re-build our soils, improve the nutritional value of our food supply, and create a healthier physical and social environment for all!
