Our Theme this Year: Social Resilience is Climate Resilience
In light of the recent critical conversations around racial justice in society, we will be focusing several of our central events around the intersections of climate resilience, racial justice and social resilience and encourage Climate Prep Week hosts to consider doing the same.
WHAT IS CLIMATE PREP WEEK?
During September 23–30 each year, we mark Climate Preparedness Week, dedicated to learning, service, and actions that better prepare our communities for extreme weather events. By coming together to host events, we provide the resources and space to think about the ways that climate change disadvantages some communities more than others.
This Year - We’re Virtual!
We realize that many of us are still getting adjusted to this new normal so, in order to ease the workload, CREW [Communities Responding to Extreme Weather] will be hosting some centralized virtual events that any organization can co-opt and participate in.
Last year, we held events that featured contributions from dozens of community partners throughout Massachusetts, including...
The Boston City Council, Boston May Day Coalition, the Boston Public Health Commission, the Cambridge City Council, the Cambridge Public Library, CultureHouse, Eastie Farm, several branches of the Massachusetts Library System, Mayor Narkewicz of Northampton, Speak for the Trees Boston, the Somerville City Council, UMass Boston's Sustainable Solutions Lab, and more.
