We seek to reach, awaken and engage others and ourselves in action towards solving the climate crisis. We’ll host a variety of events aimed at educating, inspiring and motivating for the greatest impact + leadership on climate.
Our Chapter’s Approach:
‘Climate Reality Presents’ Meetings
We host a public presentation of ‘Truth in 10’ followed by working groups every other month. The speaker will get you up to speed on the international climate crisis. Remaining time will be spent getting into action on issues and action in our region. Meetings are the second Wednesday of odd months at REI in Chicago (1466 N Halsted) from 6:00–7:30pm. Check our CALENDAR for most accurate meeting descriptions and dates. RSVP on Facebook
Days of Action
A day of action can be a fun way to come together as a group while gaining momentum on an initiative. It can be as simple as seeking petition signatures at a farmers market or arranging a group meeting with an elected official, or as elaborate as a protest, march or flash mob.
Member-hosted events at a location of their choice. These are more social in nature yet still have an action item or speaker planned. Potlucks are the go-to event, but the sky is the limit. Try incorporating an action item in the activity (e.g. postcard writing, video-making, etc.).
