Climate Strike Week Boulder Sept. 20 to Sept. 29

Don’t miss the launch of the city’s next phase of climate action on Sept. 26

This week, young people all across the globe are participating in strikes to advocate for our climate. There are lots of ways to participate in this global movement in Boulder. Here’s a roundup of some of the exciting and galvanizing events.

Colorado Climate Crisis Teach-In
When:  Sept. 21, 12:30 to 4 p.m.
Where:  Unity of Boulder Church, 2855 Folsom St.
What:  In order to fight the climate crisis, we must understand it. Get up to speed on the latest news, facts and research. You can join us in-person in Boulder or watch online! We will send information about the live-streaming to you via email and share via social media before the event.

Dialogues for our Future: Community Climate Storytelling
When:  Sept. 23, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where:  The Bartlett Center, room C215, 4001 Discovery Drive
What:  Boulder.Earth, CU WiSE, the Bartlett Center and 500 Women Scientists are excited to offer Dialogues for our Future: Community Climate Storytelling. Inspired by the United Nation’s Talanoa Dialogue events from last year, this gathering will bring the Boulder and university community together to reflect on the science and human experience surrounding climate change. We will stay present with the truth of our time: holding hope alongside despair, building empathy, and charting a path towards a regenerative, just and equitable future. Speakers will address science, justice, spirituality, and community perspectives on the causes, impacts, solutions and adaptations to climate change. There will be a chance for networking and for audience members to share their own (short!) stories.

Boulder Climate Mobilization Launch
When:  Sept. 26, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Where:  Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building, 3145 Colorado Ave.
What:  The focus of the event will be to introduce and launch a community-based mobilizing process around deep climate action. It will include opportunities for community members to indicate where they may be interested in getting more information or taking an active part. We will be creating stations associated with the major action focus areas we currently believe are essential to climate stabilization. These include: energy systems change; ecosystems and sequestration; circular economy and reduced materials use; climate finance; and land use.

A full calendar is available on a dynamic, grassroots website created by-and-for the community to foster awareness, collaboration and connectivity for increased impact on environmental and social justice in Boulder.
