Ecological Action Workshop - Wellness Day

Ecological Action & Climate Change with Amy Concilio.

Do you want to impact climate change and have fun doing it? Learn what you can do at a personal level and share your own ideas. In this interactive workshop, we will explore lifestyle choices that reduce our environmental footprint and lead to increased health and happiness. Amy will share examples from her own life of cooperative approaches to reducing waste and resource consumption, growing food and wildlife habitat, and building community resilience in Santa Cruz, Boulder, and Austin, in the U.S.A. You will be invited to share your experiences about environmental initiatives that are happening locally in Angers and the Loire Valley, as well as to brainstorm ideas about projects that you want to make happen!

No reservation necessary. Free and open to the public.

Amy Concilio earned an M.S. in Ecology at the University of Toledo, a Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Cruz through their interdisciplinary Environmental Studies program, and is now a professor of Environmental Science at St. Edward’s University. Her research specializes in the impacts of climate change, invasive species, and nitrogen deposition on natural ecosystems, and restoration approaches for wilderness preserves and urban green spaces in an era of global change.
