Greta Thunberg - Fight Against Climate Change

Community Activities

Dear Climate Defenders
You may already be aware of this event taking place next Friday, Sept. 20th. The closest event for us is in Salinas. See the attached flyer for details.
It’s a day of action mobilizing the youth of the world under the leadership of Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish student who by now is known the world over for her extraordinary leadership.
Community Forum on the U.N Global Goals for Sustainability
On May 2, 2019, CSMC participated as a community partner at this event at the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS).   We shared information on CSMC’s projects for engaging the community in reducing our ecological footprint. We highlighted, in particular, Seaside’s Sustainable Home Tours, and CSMC’s project on plastic pollution, as examples of actions taken at the local and grass root level.
