WATCH: Climate Action Planning panel discussion

“Climate action is the civic responsibility of our time.” – Emory Lee

Thanks to everyone who attended our Climate Action Planning panel discussion last Thursday! We had a lively discussion with our three panelists that was packed with insight into making and implementing a good plan that reduces carbon emissions while working with your community’s specific needs and goals.

If you missed the panel, don’t fret! You can watch the recording below:

One of our panelists, Emory, brought us home with one of the most inspiring lines of the night: “Climate action is the civic responsibility of our time.” I’d put that on a tee-shirt, wouldn’t you?

One of the best ways to fulfill this civic responsibility is by joining a CREW and creating your own Personal Climate Action Plan. Click below to receive the support, accountability, and community inspiration you need to get started with your plan!

Sea to Soil Summit

On April 21, join Stony Brook Southampton for the first annual Sea to Soil Summit! Kelp and seaweeds can restore the seas, replenish soil and add flavor to our food. Learn how kelp can help mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon in the sea and soil.

This is an in-person event at Duke Lecture Hall, Chancellors Hall Stony Brook Southampton Campus that will be held on April 21, 2023 from 12:30 to 4:30 pm.

Earth Groove

Another upcoming in-person event this month is Earth Groove! Happening on Earth Day, April 22, at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton, this event features an art show as well as table presentations from local environmentalists about projects happening in the area.

The tables will be set up outside from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on April 22. Come by to support local artists and learn about how you can get involved with environmental initiatives in your community! Stick around later in the evening for a live music and dance event.
