CANCELLED!! Gray Is Green: Seniors as a Force for Environmental Protection

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The United States is rapidly becoming an older society. In the next 15 years, with the aging of Boomers, nearly one in five Americans will be over age 65. Elders are a critical constituency to be mobilized to protect our planet for future generations, but environmental advocates have not always paid attention to this group. For example, older people are sometimes skeptical about climate change, yet they can be engaged on this and other issues with appropriate communication. In this presentation, we identify critical issues for environment and aging and share elements of a new educational curriculum developed by Gray Is Green to help engage the older population in years to come. Presented by Harry “Rick” Moody of Gray is Green: National Senior Conservation Corps.  OCTOBER 19 UPDATE: DUE TO UNEXPECTED CIRCUMSTANCES, RICK MOODY IS NO LONGER ABLE TO MAKE THIS PRESENTATION.
