Event description
Join us for a rare opportunity in an interactive conversation with an international expert for global perspectives & how to act locally.

About this Event

Join us on Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, to help shine light on this topic. We have a rare opportunity to participate in an interactive conversation with international expert, Mark Meldrum.

News reports of climate change are increasingly frequent and illustrate there is indeed a crisis at hand. Unfortunately these reports do not often provide much in the way of detail, broader impacts, substantiation, or initiatives where people can contribute in a positive way. This conversation will give us a chance to understand the macro trends and how it all fits together. What is the impact on our society, on our local community, on you, on our kids? What can you do that makes a difference?

Bringing this issue into the light will help us locally move forward with solutions and actions in 2020.There will be a cash bar and light snacks provided. Please bring refillable/reusable containers. Please bring your family including children/grandchildren (12 years or older), let friends know, spread the word!
