[yinyang] ecoglobe Sustainability workshop "Exploring Green Lifestyles"

Exploring Green Lifestyles

a workshop that will change your mind!

The media keeps telling us the future should be "greener". And indeed, our lifestyles are not "sustainable". We cannot go on living the way we do for a long time.

So - what do we do about it?

Explore your vision on how you want to develop your life and your environment. We will explore "Green Lifestyles" in an attractive mixture of fun exercises, presentations, and discussions.

ecoglobe courses:
Exploring Green Lifestyles - a workshop that will change your mind!
Environmental Motivation - what does it take to do something for the environment?(under preparation)

our principles:

ecoglobe is politically neutral, since - at the end of the day - nature makes no distinction between left and right, poor or rich.
We see it as our task to provide neutral and realistic information about the environment. People can then make informed choices.

ecoglobe is a vision of a sustainable society and a platform for eco-logic information.
