Want to go on an all-expenses-paid educational eco-retreat, where you get to enjoy delicious organic meals with like-minded environmentalists? Then get your application in for the Eco-Leader Training program from the No Impact Project.
No Impact Man Colin Beavan made big green headlines with his year sans electricity and toilet paper — a feat that has been chronicled in a blog, book and film — and has inspired many would-be no impact people to take week-long carbon cleanses through the nonprofit offshoot of Colin’s efforts, No Impact Project.
Colin has traveled the country inspiring people to make green changes in their lives, neighborhoods and country — and now seeks would-be eco-leaders who want to do the same. He, along with educator Leah Mayor, will facilitate the training. According to No Impact Project’s description:
The Eco-Leader Training will teach you how to use the No Impact Week, an immersive, educational weeklong experiment in low-impact living, as a tool for building an environmentally conscious, action-oriented community…. When you return home, you will be ready to go out and empower your community to make a difference.
