When we think about the state of our planet we can sometimes feel like there is not a lot we can do. But what if we decide to take just one step to make a difference? And then we take another step, and another. Approaching things this way helps us feel good knowing we have done something and leaves us feeling empowered to do more.
We want to let you know about 3 steps you can take in the next couple of weeks to make a difference. Whistler is privileged to have Elizabeth May visiting and a screening of the incredible film Racing Extinction, as well as our regular potlucks.
Come join one of these community events to connect with like-minded people and feel inspired to help create a better future for our world.
Climate Conference with Elizabeth May
Join AWARE as we welcome Elizabeth May to Whistler on January 21st for a Report on the COP21 Paris UN Climate Change Conference and explore how the global commitments made might translate into to community scale action.
Discovery Channel recently presented Racing Extinction to a global audience. From Academy Award-winning director, Louie Psihoyos, this groundbreaking documentary examines biodiversity loss, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a more sustainable future.
