What can YOU do to stop climate change?
Thurston Climate Action Team (TCAT) and Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) invite you to attend the 4th Annual South Sound Climate Action Convention for a full day of learning about cooperative actions we can take to protect our planet from the worst impacts of climate change. To keep up the momentum, local Action Groups formed at the convention will continue meeting and acting in the months that follow.
In his book, Drawdown, The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, Paul Hawken provides 100 well-researched, economically viable, and realistic solutions. Convention workshops will cover key areas identified by Hawken, including Energy, Food and Agriculture, Green Buildings and Cities, Transportation, Trees and Land Use, and Water, as well as a strong advocacy track from our Citizens’ Climate Lobby partners and sessions on Education, Youth, and Climate Justice.
You will leave with concrete things you can do!
