In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
On Saturday and Sunday, Sept 20 & 21, Tucsonans will join in workshops and a march in solidarity with climate marchers and those calling for a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
Workshops, Saturday, September 20, 10am – 4pm
Sam Lena Library, 1607 S. 6th Ave
A full day of workshops and presentations ranging from community resiliency to electric vehicles to moving beyond protest, all with a focus on how global warming is related to the majority of the issues we care about, and how effective responses through all these issues will help mitigate global warming. The presentations run the gamut from a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizen’s United, to switching to renewable energy and enabling local economies. Speakers are from national march co-sponsors and local organizations such as Sierra Club Rincon Group, 350.org, Occupy Tucson, Coalitions of Mutual Endeavor, Move to Amend, Tucson Bus Riders Union, and others. Special banner and sign-making workshop for the next day’s march will take place during the last workshop timeslot. Kids welcome!
