Transition ABQ: Fossil Fuel Free by 2023 - A Personal Challenge

January 10, 2018 6:30 PM
First Unitarian Church, Memorial Hall - 3701 Carlisle Blvd NE

Join Transition ABQ for monthly gatherings where we network, discuss sustainability and resilience in Albuquerque, get updates from our work groups, share food, scheme ideas, do activities, and learn new things.

A new year often brings new aspirations and plans for personal growth. So on that note, we're going to start the new year hearing from one Transitioner who has made the ambitious goal to be Fossil-Fuel Free by 2023!

The president of NM Solar Energy Association, Athena Christodoulou, was slowly and haphazardly working toward fossil-fuel freedom. The recent hurricanes and fires, national politics, and business as usual in New Mexico inspired her to step up her game. Come join us to find out how personal choices can help YOU leave fossil fuel behind and still live a fine life!

Potluck is at 6:30, and the presentation will be held from 7-8:30pm.

Have you taken the Albuquerque CO2 Pledge? If so, bring yours. If you haven't yet, take a look! Check off the things you already do, and choose a few new challenges for yourself. We'll share our pledges and progress together at our tables.

What to bring:

  • A dish to share for the potluck*
  • A few dollars to contribute to the space*
  • Your ABQ CO2 Pledge, if you have one, to share your journey at your table

*If you are able. No one will be turned away.

About Transition ABQ:
We are a grassroots action group working to build a sustainable and resilient Albuquerque. We are kicking the fossil fuel habit as individuals, neighborhoods, and as a city. We are relocalizing our food, education, products, and jobs, which lowers the cost of living and improves our health and community spirit. Together, we are capable of coping with the economic and ecological crises that are already happening as we become interdependent yet self-reliant.
