Just before Earth Day, Kristen Caven will be presenting a hopeful and creative multi-media meditation on change, and host a conversation on what sustainability might look like at the historic clubhouse on Lake Merritt.
Did you know climate change can be reversed? A worldwide research project called Project Drawdown has identified 100 ways we can draw down greenhouse gas concentrations through local community action.
A member of the 350 Bay Area Speakers Bureau, Kristen will address the psychology of change and adaptation, and how our individual strengths can have global implications. Next, she will introduce the 100 identified solutions and kick off a Drawdown EcoChallenge, designed to provide the tools and inspiration for us to change our habits needed to help de-stress our ecosystem. Finally, Kristen will share a sneak peak at "Invocation," a lyrical collaboration-in-progress with pianist Daniel Finnamore around a tempestuous piece of classical music by Franz Liszt.
Suggested donation at the door is $15 for non-members, $10 for members. There is off-street parking in the garage on the top floor. The talk will be in the Terrace Room on the 4th floor after lunch.
