Madison Youth Climate Strike, March 15, 2019

What are Madison youth doing to address climate change? Come to 350 Madison’s April monthly meeting to meet the youth behind the Mad Youth Climate Team!

We will hear firsthand about Madison’s own Youth Climate Strike and Green New Deal. We also will hear how 350 Madison and other adult groups can support youth here in Madison, including a plan for an upcoming youth climate summit.

WHAT: Meet the Mad Youth Climate Team!
WHEN: Monday, April 1, 7:008:45 pm
WHERE: Friends Meetinghouse, 1704 Roberts Court, Madison
RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/552260398594844/

After the presentation, we will break into smaller discussion groups, one to help plan our next action to get Chase out of fossil fuel funding, a second to engage in further conversation about supporting youth-led climate actions, and the last to welcome newcomers.

All are welcome at all our meetings! We encourage carpooling (check here), biking (Southwest Commuter Path), and bus (#3, #6, or #58), and also welcome those arriving by car (free parking in front of the Meetinghouse).

We hope to see you there — newcomers, old-timers, and everyone in-between is welcome!

350 Madison monthly meetings are open to the public. Typically held the first Monday of the month, they offer an opportunity to be inspired by a diverse group of climate activists who share personal stories and talents and support our campaigns, events, and direct actions. These meetings are a great way to learn about what 350 Madison does, meet other 350’ers, and find the best place to plug in to the action. Please join us!

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment

The Divestment Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on the banks that provide funds for pipeline projects.

Community Energy

The Community Energy Campaign focuses on taking responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
