Event description

Description


Just as excessive fossil-fuel consumption is responsible for a series of interrelated detrimental effects on our planet, including global warming and damage of ecosystems, the energies we intake in our bodies and minds, excessive unhealthy food, overly stimulating stressors, or too much negativity, can cause worrisome conditions ranging from obesity and cancer to mental distress, which in turn, harm our planet. Opposite habits have the opposite effect. Let's be efficient....at all levels. We can have better results with less - but more mindful- use of resources. Come discuss with us on August 10 @ the UN headquarters!
