Put Your Library on the Map* – Host a Climate Change Conversation!
Be part of the 2nd Annual Climate Prep Week (Sept. 24-30).
Massachusetts libraries are partnering with Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) to host climate change conversations in libraries across the state. The workshop will begin with background on Climate Prep Week, followed by examples of resilience-building events you can host in your library. Then we’ll move into a Climate Change World Cafe experience, as you imagine yourself hosting such an event. Other event types will also be touched upon (e.g. environmental justice workshops, maker spaces, mindfulness practices, book talks, film screenings, reflective writing, and interactive displays). There will be time to brainstorm ideas and ways to find collaborators…the possibilities are limitless! For all types of libraries: public, academic, school.

*Participating libraries will be represented on an interactive map on CREW’s website.
