Over the last several months, we’ve presented a number of webinars meant to inspire local action on climate change. These webinars were made possible by a grant from Climate Impact. Climate Impact’s stated mission is “to fund local climate education and action initiatives to empower citizens to combat and adapt to climate change to embrace a sustainable future.”
We want to thank Climate Impact for their ongoing support of The Riverwood Conservancy, and giving us the ability to present this important series of webinars, along with the list of resources below. You can watch all of the Meeting the Challenge webinars, and find resources and speaker information related to each webinar, below.
Climate Change and COVID-19 are unprecedented challenges facing our planet and are taking a toll on individual mental health.
