  • Greening your household:  Become a Cool Home like these faith families who share their experiences conserving energy in their houses, shifting their transportation modes, and producing less waste. (panel)
  • Greening our places of worship: three ways to go green:  information on financing solar, taking the challenge to “Travel Lite to worship” and leave the car at home, and  creating less wasteful practices for church events and communications. (panel)
  • Reflecting on Interfaith statements on Climate Change:   discussion of written climate commitments from various faith groups.  (Stephanie Carucci, Davis Friends Meeting)
