This week is the annual Climate Preparedness Week: dedicated to learning, service, and actions that better prepare our communities for extreme weather events. There are many great events which you can browse and register for below.
One we would like to draw special attention to is on Wednesday, Sept 23 at 10 AM on Facebook Live called “The Climate Reality & How to Talk to Your Kids About it,” featuring virtual presentations by Keith Bergman and Harriet Shugarman. Both speakers are strong and influential leaders in the climate movement. They are long term mentors in The Climate Reality Project, founded by former Vice President Al Gore.
Keith Bergman lives in Concord and is the retired Town Manager for the Town of Littleton. He will talk about the climate crisis and its solutions. Author Harriet Shugarman will speak about how to talk with your children about climate change. She is the Executive Director of “Climate Mama,” the Chair of Climate Reality’s New York City Metro Chapter, and the recipient of Climate Reality’s 2017 Green Ring Award.
