The Climate Solutions Speaker Series Presents
Are We Prepared for the Storms of the Century?
Climate change is happening now, causing increasing and very serious damage to our world. What exactly does that mean for the Concord area? Our vulnerabilities need to be realistically identified, along with strategies to increase the likelihood that we can rebound. This speaker series event features a three-person panel, designed to inform us about what is likely to happen as climate change advances and how to prepare for it. Speakers are Stephanie Covino (Mass. Audubon) Barry Keppard (Metropolitan Area Planning Council), and Linda Booth-Sweeny (local writer and educator). Click here for more information about the topic and panel.

Last September, 100 members of Sustainable Wellesley bussed down to New York City for the People’s Climate March — now we have a chance to march for climate justice right here in our own greater Boston community! This Saturday — just a few miles away in West Roxbury — folks will be marching against a dangerous and unnecessary fracked gas pipeline that is being built right through their residential neighborhood! All are welcome, whether you have marched before or never before!

We are carpooling from the UU Wellesley parking lot (309 Washington St.) —departing at 8:30 am sharp, returning at noon.
