Light House: Sustainable Building Centre, guest expert series - Lindsay ColeóGoing Carbon Neutral-What does this really mean? - July 28th, 2007
This session will talk about the current media buzz around climate change, carbon neutrality, and offsetting and will dig deeply into what carbon neutrality /really /means in peoples' work and lives. We will talk about different kinds of actions that people and organizations can take to meaningfully reduce their GHGs where it really counts, including generation of renewable energy, energy efficiency, lifestyle choices, offsetting, and others. We will draw on recent research and work into what kinds of GHG cuts might be required to avoid dangerous climate change, local policy options for GHG friendly planning and construction, and other actions that people can take. We will draw on the resources, ideas and experiences of participants to make this a dynamic, interesting conversation that will leave participants inspired and motivated to take (further) action on reducing GHGs in their lives.
