2020 Napa Climate Advocacy Training

July 25, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Climate Advocacy Training

If you’ve been wanting to find a way to assist in the global fight for climate solutions, this is one of our trainings that we offer a few times throughout the year that will give you the skills you need to talk about climate change in your community, generate action in our local government, and inspire action in others. This interactive program is geared towards individuals who might have full-time jobs, but who also  want to do what they can in a limited amount of time. You’ll meet scientists, local elected leaders, and some of your neighbors! Attendance is free, but all participants who wish to join us must complete our application form.

Here is our general agenda for the day (some items may change).
