Climate Change Working Group Formed: Consider Joining Us!

If you are interested in working as part of a purposeful group, with a vision of creating a resilient future in the face of Climate Change, you are invited to a Climate Change Working Group meeting this Saturday!

DATE: Saturday, April 2nd

TIME: 10:00am to noon

LOCATION:

Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick
4880 Elmer Derr Road
Frederick MD 21703

The goal of our new group is to ensure not only our well-being, health and safety, but also the well-being of the plants and animals with whom we share our vulnerable and stressed ecosystems, by networking with others, and working together toward those shared goals.

This Saturday, the topic is Transition Initiatives.

You can download the Transition Handbook to prepare.

“We live in an oil-dependent world, arriving at this level of dependency in a very short space of time by treating petroleum as if it were in infinite supply. Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but The Transition Handbook shows how the inevitable and profound changes ahead can have a positive outcome. These changes can lead to the rebirth of local communities that will grow more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own houses using local materials. They can also encourage the development of local currencies to keep money in the local area.”
