Come join us as Rebecca Dodder leads us in the energy options game, GENERATE!

The game, developed by Rebecca and her colleagues at EPA, engages players ages 12 and older in planning for their own energy system, while balancing economic realities with the environmental consequences of their decisions. While it doesn’t ignore the difficult and complex choices, it breaks them down in an interesting and fun way that encourages dialogue around our energy choices. How we, as a community, state, and a nation, build our energy system over the next several decades will have profound implications for the health of our air, water, land, and climate.

The Durham Friends meetinghouse is the large building found at the back of the property at:
404 Alexander Avenue
Durham, NC 27705
