Now in its 7th year, Climate Week (March 27 - April 2) is a series of events focused on climate education and action. Climate Week is produced by Climate Action Brookline with community partners, organizations, businesses and individuals. We invite citizens of all ages to learn and engage in personal, local, state, national, and global actions.
Moderator: Carol Oldham, Exec. Dir. Mass Climate Action Network; Presenters: Werner Lohe, Co-Chair Brookline Selectman's Climate Action Committee; Dr. Nathan Phillips, Professor, Earth and Environment, Boston University; Audrey Schulman, Founder of HEET; Maureen Barillaro and/or Hannah Payne, Office of Sustainability and Environment, City of Somerville
Local climate initiatives are the roots of broader political action. Gas pipeline leaks are mobilizing active citizens at the town level across the Commonwealth. Hear about about what is being done to identify and mitigate the worst gas leaks. Learn about townwide net zero goals being applied to schools and individual buildings. Find out how Somerville incorporated climate change into urban planning. Discover how these efforts came to be and what level of success has been achieved. Discuss in group sessions how you can contribute to that effort.
