Food Choices: Your Food Choices and Climate Change (5 of 5)

February 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free Adult Class! Hosted by Robin Matathias (Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College). 

Food Choices is a series of classes exploring the connection between our food choices, food production systems, and their impacts on human and environmental health. Each day we make decisions about what to eat, and this simple daily act can have profound outcomes. These classes will teach you to make food choices based on the water use, land requirements, energy use, and waste that go into producing what we eat.

Professor Matathias has been teaching at Keene State College since 1997, in both the Environmental Studies and Music Departments. She specializes in teaching courses on Food, Health, and the Environment, which explores how diet, food production, and farming affects both human and environmental health, and Rethinking Energy, which explores our current energy use and resulting problems, and how to move towards a sustainable energy future.

Food Choices and Climate Change—Saturday, February 4, 2023, 1-3:30 pm

Learn how your food choices can be the best way to prevent catastrophic climate change. Discover which foods and agricultural practices contribute most to climate change and what you can do about it. Learn how to cut your carbon footprint in half just by making changes in what you eat. We will connect this important issue to population. The U.N. predicts 9 billion people by 2050. How can we provide healthy food and clean water to 9 billion people without destroying our fragile ecosystems or engaging in conflicts over diminishing resources? This class will teach you about true sustainability, about supporting 9 billion people while mitigating climate change. In this class, you will discover that everything you do really does make a difference.

This registration is for the February 4 class only (Food Choices and Climate Change). You will need to register separately for each of the classes by 5pm the day before the class. Take one or join us for them all.
