Climate Masters of Nebraska is an adult education program which was developed to teach you about climate change and ways to reduce your carbon footprint.
Participants will go through a FREE 10-week training course which will educate them on acting locally to save money, protect the environment, and reduce greenhouse emissions. As part of the course, participants are asked to share the knowledge they have gained by volunteering 30 hours within six months of the start of the course. Course topics include the basics of climate change, consumption and waste, home/renewable energy, recycling, food/composting, yards and water conservation. Field trips are also a part of the course. Past course participants toured the Bluff Road Landfill, two local farms and EcoStores Nebraska.
The next Climate Masters course will begin Thursday, January 2015 and will convene on UNL's East Campus in Hardin Hall. The course will run until March 19th. A litter pick up and field trip to the Bluff Road Landfill will be part of the 2015 course. Space is limited so register here soon!
