Bos (V) Climate Change - What Can One Person Do?

It's 5:00 Somewhere Cocktail Hour

Climate Change - What Can One Person Do?

Friday, April 7

5-6:00 pm EDT

Tina Grosowsky and Seth Evans, Elders Climate Action, will provide an explanation of climate change and its causes, along with some science-based solutions.
They will discuss how climate affects the choices we need to make - about where we live, how we get around, what food we grow, and how we act as consumers. 
What are the policy implications of these choices?  They will discuss how we can involve ourselves in the policy making process.  

Don't miss this important discussion!

Did you know that "In the United States, disproportionate percentages of Black people live in places that are polluted with toxic waste, leading to negative health effects like cancer, asthma, and more.  Black communities are also disproportionately located in areas that are physically vulnerable to climate hazards like hurricanes and flooding."  
climate: racial justice

Tina Grosowsky retired in December 2020 from a 22 year career in Public Health working on tobacco prevention, which focused on cessation, prevention, racial justice and public policy.  She is currently on the Leadership Team of Elders Climate Action Massachusetts and Director of Green Hudson.
