Hi Sean, would you want to list this on the meet-up?
4th Annual Climate Awareness Day for the Whole Family
Date: Sunday, March 7th Time: 2 p.m. Location: Congregation Beth Elohim, 271 Garfield Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn 11215
Joining Gavin on this year's climate panel will be internationally acclaimed photographer Joshua Wolfe, the youngest photographer ever to receive the Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Prize for conservation photography. He will show his photographs of the impact of climate change on nature; Frank Zeman, director of the Center for Metropolitan Sustainability at the New York Institute of Technology, will talk about technological approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions; And Sean Sweeney, director of Cornell University's Global Labor Institute and observer at the UN climate talks in Copenhagen and Bali, will offer an update on the international policy process.
The speakers we have managed to get are really the
top in the field. Gavin Schmidt, the NASA climatologist that will be speaking, is the next best thing to Al Gore. He is among the world's best known climatologists, has appeared on NOVA, CNN and the Jon Stewart Show.
Young children and teens are welcome! We have planned fabulous eco activities (age 3 and up) for them to be offered while the grown-ups attend the panel discussion. Please reserve space in these activities by e-mailing us at parentsforclimateprotection at gmail.com.
This free event is presented to you by Parents for Climate Protection in conjunction to the Congregation Beth Elohim.
