Climate Week Events

TRUTH AND CONSEQUENCES

As we experience floods, droughts, fires, fierce storms, and sea level rise resulting from Green-House-Gas emissions and the warming of the earth, citizen recognition and action continues to be essential and grows in urgency. Brookline Climate Week is an opportunity created to encourage collaboration amongst all in discovering the truths about global warming and the consequences of climate change. Working together we find solutions for a healthier world. Bring family, friends, and neighbors to maximize the impact of the 8th annual Climate Week.

National Public Health Week and Climate Week Collaboration

In 2018, National Public Health Week runs April 2 to April 8, the week before Climate Week. The Brookline Dept. of Public Health, under the leadership of Dir, Dr. Swannie Jett, has teamed up with Climate Action Brookline to create two events that highlight the connection between health and climate. These two events are listed at the top of the program. Not only is the connection between health and climate a truth and a consequence, the need for collaboration is another urgent truth and consequence, as exemplified in the National Public Health week mantra, “Changing Our Future Together.”

What Is Climate Week?

Now in its 8th year, Climate Week 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.
