How can my students and I make a difference in drawing down greenhouse gas emissions? Given the scale of climate change, it's hard to envision one person making a difference. In this workshop you will discover how, through applying research on the spread of behaviors in small social networks of family and friends, whatever actions you and your students make can expand beyond the single person or classroom. You will also look at how individual practices--whether they be reducing food waste or volunteering for a climate justice nonprofit--are connected to system wide change.
