What is the Sierra Club's strategy for effecting change? How do organized grassroots actions influence policy? Sierra Club members will discuss different strategies they have used to influence policy and how grassroots activism is a vital part of shifting the balance of power. Share your strategies and experiences so we all learn how to be more effective!
By the way, I'll also be hosting a house concert with Putnam Smith on October 18th.
Sustainability Salon is an educational forum, a venue for discussion and debate about important environmental issues, a house party with an environmental theme. We usually have featured speakers on a particular topic, interspersed with stimulating conversation, lively debate, delectable potluck food and drink, and music-making through the evening.
Past topics have included community solar power, Marcellus shale development and community rights, green building, air quality, health care, solar power, trees & park stewardship, alternative energy & climate policy, regional watershed issues, fantastic film screenings & discussions (led by the filmmakers) over the winter with both YERT and Gas Rush Stories, and food, food, and more food.
