The Green Sanctuary Committee will present a series of Climate Conversations this spring. The focus is on what’s happening at the state, county, and local levels in legislation, initiatives, education, and other areas to help us all limit future climate change and adapt our communities to live with changes that already are occurring. We welcome the League of Women Voters of the Kalamazoo Area as a co-sponsor of these events.
Three talks have been scheduled for Sunday afternoons. Come to Room 19 after church to join us for a light lunch. The conversations will begin at about 12:30 p.m.
February 18, Denise Keele, Executive Director, Michigan Climate Action Network
March 24, Taylor Van Winkle, Kalamazoo County Climate Sustainability Coordinator
April 14, Justin Gish, City of Kalamazoo Sustainability Planner
Denise Keele will open our series on Sunday, February 18, bringing us up to date about the state of climate justice in Michigan, recently adopted legislation, and what to expect during the coming year. Denise has spoken at People’s several times in the past about the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition and other climate action at WMU and in the Kalamazoo area. Come prepared to learn what’s happening, to ask questions, and to share ideas.
