From Uncertainty to Action: What You Can Do About Climate Change

May 17, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $ 18

The Jewish Climate Action Network (JCAN) is sponsoring its first conference, a time for community members from across New England concerned about climate change to come together. The conference will focus on a Jewish response to climate change, ideas for action, and how climate change is fundamentally a social justice issue. It will provide organized opportunities to connect with others interested in working together.

Summery of the conference:

  • Panel exploring what Judaism adds to our understanding and ability to respond to climate change
  • Two rounds of workshops, each of which will provide concrete information about a specific way to respond to the threat of climate change and to connect with others
  • Opportunity to speak with community organizations and businesses involved in environmental work
  • Special workshop for teens and tweens
  • Short wrap-up program highlighting what has been accomplished and providing a send off
  • Facilitation of informal gatherings for dinner at nearby restaurants those who want to continue the conversations.
