MV Climate Action Week
What can you do to make a positive difference? Take part in MV Climate Action Week!
A full schedule of events is planned throughout the Island all week long, from aquaculture, Coast Guard and farm tours, films, exhibitions, and informational events to a climate action concert at the Ritz.
A finale event Saturday, May 14 at the Grange will include an electric vehicle parade, music - including a song written and performed by Molly Conole (with Mark Lovewell) just for the occasion! - food, student talks, children’s activities, lots of climate action information and a presentation on the MV Climate Action Plan.
When it comes to CLIMATE ACTION it’s all hands on deck.
Local climate change impacts include sea level rise, more flooding and stronger storms, plus hotter weather, more rain, and also more drought. All these impacts are affecting our health and well-being, the natural world, the built environment, and the Island economy.
To become a climate change resilient community, it’s up to each of us to make informed decisions and take positive action.
Climate Action Week is a community engagement project organized as a part of the MV Climate Action Plan being developed by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission.
