Daily monitoring of over 20 web sites and 3 e-mail feeds to aggregate news stories on climate change.  Many of these web sites are themselves aggregations, so most climate change news stories appear here promptly and without repetition.  No more than 7 items per day are posted. Prepared by a member of Sustainable Arlington and the Climate Change Team at First Parish UU of Arlington.

 1. "Dare to Repair!

Stories of preserving treasure and preventing waste"

with True Story Theater

Thursday, July 11, 7:30 - 8:45 pm

Robbins Library, Community Room, Arlington Center


Join other members of Arlington and surrounding communities for an evening of entertainment around the theme of what happens next when stuff we use breaks.  Does it have to be thrown out?  Can it be fixed? Who can repair it?   Bring your stories of success, frustration and failure with fixing things and discover the different ways that an improv/playback theater troupe can present them.

 2. Fix-It Clinic

with Sustainable Arlington, Sustainable Belmont, Robbins Library, Arlington Recycles and the Arlington Zero Waste Committee 

(tools and repair experience providedby our Fix-It Coachs)

Sunday, July 14, 1-4 pm

Thompson School Gym, 187 Everett St., East Arlington


Building resilient communities through conveying basic troubleshooting skills and celebrating repair, Fixit Clinics are do-it-together hands-on fix-n-learn community-based exploration and discovery workshops staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches who generously share their time, tools and expertise to consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of items.

So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronic gadgets, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. Fixit Coaches (and helpful neighbors) will be available for consultation on broken items: we'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether you fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked, ready to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large. (Hopefully you’ll be inspired to become a Fixit Coach yourself.)

3. Pop-Up Playground Concert for the Climate

with Arlington Mothers Out Front and Tardigrade Stage musicians

for famlies with kids and kids at heart

Sunday, July 14, 3:30-4:30 pm

at Thompson School picnic area, North Union St., East Arlington


Bring a picnic, enjoy a free concert and face painting, and learn about actions to take to support a livable climate.
