Climate Conversations: Strategic Climate Change Communications

Join Climate Conversations for engaging discussions, presentations and calls to action to address climate change in our community.

For the October 8 meeting, Paige Dolci and Rishya Narayana of Mass Audubon will discuss communicating about climate change with a specific focus on the value of nature and nature-based solutions to climate change.  This presentation will be followed by a general discussion including action items for the group.
