On the 9th Matthew Baran, a Williams College student, will explain how to get started by reducing your carbon footprint with the COOL Challenge. On the 23rd Nancy Nylen, Associate Director of the Center for Ecological Technology, will share resources and answer questions about how to implement changes you would like to make in your home and your lifestyle to address climate change.
