Metrowest residents are invited to learn how we can work with others for climate justice. Please join us at the 350MA Metrowest Node meeting Thursday, September 7, at Peace Lutheran Church, 105 Concord Road/Route 126, Wayland, MA 01778, from 7:00 to 9:30pm.
Lisa Young will inspire us with the many successes resulting from different social justice groups leveraging their individual impacts by sharing news and collaborating on actions. Lisa Young is Climate Justice Partnerships Coordinator for 350MA for a Better Future. In addition, node members will present a summary of a recent Boston area presentation about hydro-power sourced from Canada, being billed as “green energy for Massachusetts,” but looking closer – how “green” is it, really? Tim Brainerd of Framingham says, “The more we see the bigger picture, the more people will choose to be involved.”
Also on the agenda: local advocacy and actions, including our ongoing effort to assess sustainability efforts in several nearby towns. First time visitors are especially welcome; come learn and share. Our Metrowest node public meetings usually happen the first Thursday of the month, with locations changing to accommodate learners, supporters, and activists from towns around the region. All are invited to participate in the breakout groups for the local initiatives as well as in the informal planning group that meets on dates prior to the monthly meeting. OK to arrive early to mingle. Light refreshments will be available.
