EVENT: Workshop on Climate Change Action – Sept 26th 12 -2


Olympic Climate Action, in conjunction with 350.org and other civic organizations, is hosting a “Power Through Paris” workshop Saturday, September 26, from 12:00-2:00 PM at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 South Peabody Street, to plan for local action centered on global climate talks in Paris later this year.  These talks and their aftermath will be crucial in determining global response to climate change, and citizens around the world are organizing to send a message to world leaders that it’s time to convert to clean energy.  This event is free and open to the public.

2015 is on track to be the hottest year in recorded history, the entire West has seen record drought, floods, and wildfire, and momentum is growing to stop the climate crisis. Political and religious leaders are beginning to get the message, as the Pope’s climate encyclical and visit to the U.S. underscores; to carry this message home, climate action groups are organizing events across the world to precede, accompany, and follow the global gathering of governments at the Paris climate change talks which begin November 30.  The workshop will share ideas, build energy, and lay out plans for local action to “Power Through Paris”.
