To imagine, plan and achieve together within our communities to address the climate crisis facing our planet
Tell us about your idea
We have stopped so much to care for ourselves, those we love and people we don't even know because of the virus. The pandemic has given us time together with those we normally pass- in our own homes- parents, siblings, grandparents, extended family members as we go on making our lives. Let us stop again- using Fridays to focus on the climate crisis with our families and include community members: elders, artists, engineers, mothers/fathers/other caregivers, manual laborers, professionals, essential workers, legislators- everyone since everyone has a part. To imagine, plan and achieve a better future starting with big dreams and small steps at first, immediate to long-term changes. Taking the real learning from our interactions with the earth and each other, from science and citizen science to change the impact we have from a negative to a positive one. Schools can be the convening places, welcoming all who want to work toward a more healthy human impact.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I am a mother and grandmother and this time has been valuable to realize what is important and that we can come together when we must to accomplish amazing results.
