Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

with Matthew Benson
Larry Hurst presides

Matthew Benson will lead a deep dive into how the choices we make everyday regarding our habits, traditions and lifestyle impact the local and global environment and contribute to climate change. New and innovative data and recommendations will be given to the audience to take personal steps to live in greater ethical alignment; improve their health; lower their carbon footprint; and make a lifelong commitment to slow and reverse further global warming and adverse climate change.

How aligned are our habits and lifestyle with our ethical ideals? Is there a way we can simultaneously live more ethically; improve our health; and do our part to protect the environment and lower our carbon footprint? What steps can we take as individuals, families and communities to restore and clean our oceans, land and air do our part to forestall further adverse climate change?
