MCA 8 Week Program
Mindful Climate Action trainings consist of eight weekly, 2 to 2.5 hour group sessions, complemented by daily mindfulness practice focused on concepts, experiences, and behavioral choices relevant to carbon footprint and climate change. The Mindful Climate Action program will help people drive less, walk and bicycle more, reduce household energy use and overconsumption, and eat less meat and more plant-based foods.
The goal is to improve health and happiness while reducing carbon footprint.
This behavioral training wellness program combines mindfulness-based meditation practice with college-level education on climate change, energy use, and carbon footprint. Mindfulness research has substantially grown over the last decade, indicating that mindfulness interventions have great potential to effect behavior change, but the connection between mindfulness and carbon footprint has yet to be tested.
