NWEI’s New Mini-Course, Powering a Bright Future, is now available! The Northwest Earth Institute is proud to announce the release of its newest mini-course, Powering A Bright Future.  This two-session course explores issues related to the current energy crises, and what we can do to take action as individuals and communities interested in promoting energy sustainability.
Powering a Bright Future contains solution-based curriculum providing discourse on energy use and extraction, peak oil, fossil fuel subsidies, energy efficiency, equity, energy policy and even low carbon food tips. Authors include Lester Brown, Richard Heinberg, Amory Lovins, Sandra Steingraber, and others.

What you need to know:
  • This mini-course can be offered as a stand alone two-session course, or used as a supplement to complement any of NWEI’s other courses.
  • Cost is $10, and this course is only available in PDF format.
  • Due to the inherent connections between climate change and energy use, we are offering this new mini-course in conjunction with Global Warming: Changing CO2urse. You can now participate in both courses for $15.  

We hope you will consider participating in this new mini-course in honor of upcoming Earth Day, or in light of 2012 being the United Nations Year of Sustainable Energy for All.
