Perhaps you know that the No Impact Project, my non-profit effort, has been developing a series of programs to help people discover lifestyle adaptations that are both better for them and the planet. One of the programs is called No Impact Week. You may remember that we ran a virtual version online in collaboration with the Huffington Post.
As we say on the No Impact Project website:
The No Impact Experiment is a one-week carbon cleanse. It is a chance for you to see what a difference no-impact living can have on your quality of life. It’s not about giving up creature comforts but an opportunity for you to test whether the modern “conveniences” you take for granted are actually making you happier or just eating away at your time and money.
Well, now we're developing an in-person, live, community version of the No Impact Week, where participants, who live in the same area, meet every day during the No Impact Week for workshops and other shared learning experiences.
We're running the beta-version of the program here in New York City starting on February 21 and are looking for about 15 people to participate. Want to join in? Write to me at noimpactman[at]gmail.com (don't forget to replace the [at] with an @). Or you can RSVP on Facebook here.
Colin Beavan (that's me!) is now leading a conversation about finding a happy, helpful life at Colinbeavan.com. If you want to know how people are breaking out and and finding authentic, meaningful lives that help our world, check it out the blog here and sign up to join the conversation here.
