6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Hear about what climate leaders are doing in our communities and how to get involved. Our February chapter meeting will feature three topics and is open to all.
Growing Gardens‘ Executive Director Jason Skipton will speak about this local nonprofit organization that uses the experience of growing food in schools, backyards, and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy, equitable communities. Our soil is a critical and often overlooked part of climate action. Learn how Growing Gardens is creating change with social justice at its core.
Climate Education in Schools / Climate Reality leader Lynn Merrick will discuss The SAGE Team for Climate Education, which develops and offers lessons, workforce information, and service-learning opportunities for middle and high school students to equip them with knowledge about our region’s climate action goals and solutions and empower them to take meaningful action to achieve these goals by 2030.
The Faces of Climate Change / Climate Reality leader Kate Gaertner and team will share their collaborative social media project: an interactive, visual campaign to capture individuals’ concern and growing awareness of the climate crisis, as well as to amplify what citizens are doing to take action personally in their everyday lives and politically both locally and nationally to build resiliency and to support meaningful policies in support of climate change mitigation.
