AMES, Iowa — Join Iowa Learning Farms on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at noon for an engaging, interactive and motivational webinar about how moments of awe and gratitude can improve the environment.

Jacqueline Comito, an anthropologist and the director of Iowa Learning Farms, will define awe and gratitude and will explore what science says about how experiences of awe and expressions of gratitude can impact environmental attitudes and behaviors.

Jacqueline Comito.During the webinar, Comito will discuss the ways that we might integrate the tools of awe and gratitude into our environmental work when it seems like real change is eluding us.

“When we look at the environmental crises we are facing, it is clear that our bodies, minds and souls are more disintegrated with the natural world than more fully integrated. The transformation we need is to reverse that. How do we do it?” asks Comito.

To learn more about the science of awe and gratitude and how they can be used as tools to improve the environment, tune in to this unique webinar.
