"Getting Your Own House in Order: How and Why to Live an
Environmentally Sustainable Lifestyle"

Dan Ruben, President of the Green Decade in Newton, MA will discuss how
our lifestyle impacts the environment and our future. Special emphasis
will be devoted to global warming-how it is a threat to our economy and
well-being, and how we can reduce the greenhouse gas emissions resulting
from the way we live. Participants will learn how to improve their
impact on the environment, and which actions are not very important.
They will learn how to reduce their use of energy, water, garbage, and
toxins. Dan's presentation will also explore the role of theologians
in addressing the environmental threats that we face.

The Green Decade's programs are designed to build awareness, to provide
opportunities for public dialogue, and to educate and empower citizens
to take personal and civic action.
