Here's an overview of the three sessions:

February 20: 

Rethinking Holiday Celebrations


 You’ll gain new content knowledge, deepening your   understanding of the ecological impact of consumption as well   as the relationship between life satisfaction and “stuff.”

February 27:
Simplifying Gift-Giving, Food & Gatherings


You’ll be inspired and learn how to use resources introduced to you to help your clients take concrete actions to live more environmentally friendly and more meaningful lives.

March 6:

Instructors are Susan Salterberg (UNI CEEE) and Kristi Cooper (ISU Extension & Outreach). If you have questions, please contact Susan Salterberg (susan.salterberg@uni.edu; 319-337-4816).

Participants in UNI workshops say:

·         "I have cut way back on 'recreational shopping.'"

·         "I think more, 'do I need this?'"

·         "If everyone got to see one portion of what we talked about, some eyes would be opened."
