Feb. 3 through Apr. 14 - a Climate Master™ class in Santa Fe

The New Mexico Environment Department will be offering a Climate Master™ class in Santa Fe from February 3 through April 14, 2011.

The Climate Master™ program is an 11-week free series of classes focused on climate change and what you can do to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions in your daily life. Class topics include Climate Change, Home Energy, Water, Transportation, Green Building, Renewable Energy, Yards, Consumption and Waste, Food, Sustainable Behavior, and Climate Change Communication. Local experts in these fields will discuss these topics, climate change, and how to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate Master™ is modeled after the Master Gardener program. This program is a two-part educational effort, in which community members are provided 30 hours of training and in return they “pay back” the program through 30 hours of volunteer service in the year following the training.

On average, students who take the class can reduce their own personal emissions by approximately 2 tons per year. Individual action is critical because individuals are the end users of most energy production via home heating and cooling, appliances, food, travel, and disposable products. Climate Master™ will provide training, specific tools and methods that will enable you to join others in making a difference.

*/Registration is required. The deadline to register is February 1, 2011/* * *

The class is limited to the first 25 participants to register. See the website for application and class details. Confirmation of successful registration will be sent by email or phone.
