Feb 16 2013 – Climate Crisis Mobilization – IIT Kent in Chicago
The February 16, 2013, Climate Crisis Summit in Chicago will be a full-day working conference that will provide each participant with specific take-aways in three areas:
- How can I make sense of this? What responses are commensurate with the depth of this crisis? The science is clear; what IS blocking efforts to address the urgency?
- Which approaches to bringing about change make sense to me, and how concretely will I be involved in the days ahead? How can I get involved with key activist groups and make a real contribution?
- We need to build a movement — how can I help get the word out and engage others?
Morning plenary to be followed by afternoon breakout sessions to focus on action planning* and networking.
