Let's Talk Our Own Environmental Impact

Sep 12, 2018

Let's Talk New Mexico 9/13 8 am: What do you do to keep the environment clean? Do plastic bans, eating less meat, taking fewer plane trips or carrying reusable silverware really matter? We'll talk about how to make choices that are good for the environment. We'll also look at lessons from tribes and communities across the region that have lived sustainably for generations. 

  • Have you changed your lifestyle because of climate change? What changes did you make? 
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by options and don't know what would be best? 
  • How do you think local governments and organizations can help people make small changes that might add up if those changes are taken on across the community? 

Guests: 

Estefany Gonzalez-Mendoza, program director at Juntos: Our Air, Our Water 
Dr. Constantine Hadjilambrinos, associate professor of Geography and Environmental Studies at UNM 
Valerie Hermanson, transportation planner for the Mid Region Council of Governments
Sarah Pierpont, executive director of the New Mexico Recycling Coalition
