Joanna Macy advises all of us "to dare to do something and NOT STOP!" She also says that taking actions is "good for our morale, good for our love life, and just plain good!" As we have been learning these past nine weeks, sustainability is a verb, a journey, and an ongoing transformative way of life. How can we, day by day, make down-to-earth connections between sobering awareness and effective environmental engagement? How can we discern what is "ours to do?" Today we will review highlights and takeaways from Spring of Sustainability 2014, with a special focus on ways to make sustainability inviting and enlivening.
