Climate Week Events

A Pivotal Moment in History

Each step of the journey in the climate movement takes on added urgency as the negative impacts of climate change grow. The current administration’s anti-climate orientation adds a dangerous and peculiar obstacle. The climate movement in 2017 is resisting retreat from previous progress and is committed to move forward.

What Is Climate Week?

Now in its 7th year, Climate Week (March 27 - April 2) is a series of events focused on climate education and action. Climate Week is produced by Climate Action Brookline with community partners, organizations, businesses and individuals. We invite citizens of all ages to learn and engage in personal, local, state, national, and global actions.
