Youth-Education-Communication-Outreach Action Group meeting

September 5, 2019 - 3 PM
Olympia Community Center
222 Columbia St NW, Olympia

We will learn about the ways the youth-education-communication-outreach (YECO) network, one of TCAT’s action groups, is linked from the local to the international (UNFCCC) levels, hear inspiring accounts from those engaged in this work, map the gaps in order to steadily scale climate and resiliency learning and action in Thurston County.

Please contact Abby Ruskey at ruskeystrategies@google.com if you are interested in attending.

Why is this group important?  The latest Yale poll found that it is likely that the majority of people in our community are not informed about, nor discussing with others, climate change and the quickly looming consequences. Yet the electric vehicle, solar and wind energy, net zero buildings and manufacturing, generative agriculture/permaculture and other solutions cannot happen at scale or fast enough without an informed public  And when those on the frontlines of this issue locally were asked whether or not they believed that we could collectively solve this issue, only a few hands went up in a room of hundreds.  It is likely that today most in our community are underinformed or ill-informed, fearful and/or lacking information and support around the wide range of important and doable actions they can take.
