Energy Challenge Week Kickoff

September 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Climate Change: The Science, The Solutions, and Taking Action

A multi-generational presentation

Join us for this kick-off presentation that will put Energy Challenge Week+Green Tour in context. You’ll learn about:

  • The current science of climate change;
  • The global impacts of climate change and its effects here in the Pacific Northwest;
  • What is being done in energy efficiency and the built environment to reduce emissions; and
  • How you can be an agent of change.

Energy is the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions—we need to radically reduce how much energy we use and make the shift to renewables. A great place to start is in the homes and apartments we live in, and in the local policies that shape them.

Our presenters: Team Skidmore!

Come learn from the multi-generational team of Caroline Skidmore, her two teenage sons Jack (15) and AJ (13), and Caroline’s father David Sandborg. All four have all been trained as Climate Leaders by Al Gore’s Climate Realty Project. Hear why this family is committed to helping our community leave a healthy climate for future generations.
