The Northwest Earth Institute is offering an eight-session online discussion course, using our Choices for Sustainable Living coursebook. The online CSL course will be facilitated by the staff of Northwest Earth Institute.

Sustainability is a complex and somewhat contradictory concept, but at its best represents the hope for a healthy, just and bright future for us all.

We will be using the online EcoChallenge action platform to help participants discover new ways to make change more possible and powerful, both individually and together.
