Climate Week in Brookline

With 3 events, a library display and a town wide scavenger hunt, our team is launching into Brookline Climate Week (next week!) in #Brookline with full force.    All the events are free and open to the public.

gas-leaks-flag.jpgWe'll place yellow flags marking some of the gas leaks in Brookline. Your job? Go out and find them, take a picture of flag (with you if you can) and post to our Facebook page or Twitter feed.   The account with the most found flags wins!  See complete rules.  Outraged about the gas leaks?  Sign our petition to tell the Massachusetts legislature: Time to fix gas leaks!

 

We start the week with Climate Cafe on Tuesday night, March 29th (6:30pm at Temple Sinai, 50 Sewall Ave., Brookline) 
Two environmental leaders, Rabbi Shoshana Meira Friedman and Dan Ruben from Boston Green Tourism will share their journey into the climate movement through TED-style presentations.  Their talks will be followed by a small group break out sessions to give attendees a chance to explore their place in the climate action movement.  

On Wednesday, March 30th, we take part in a 3 part panel on local renewable energy sources, gas leaks which litter our air, and smart growth through long range community vision work.  6:30pm, All Saints Parish, 1773 Beacon St., Brookline.

Saturday is the big 3R depot at Town Hall: bring your non-recyclable recyclables, such as Styrofoam, your used sports gear, bikes and sample some delicious food.  We'll bring the large map of #Brookline with marked gas leaks.

Don't forget to stop by the Main Library at 361 Washington St in Brookline to see our display plus a large paper mache nose smelling all the gas leaks!  The display will be up until May 1st.
