We will have a discussion of our upcoming goals for 2019, including:
- Potentially partnering w/ other area groups on upcoming events (Radish Health Living Winter Fest January 19 (10:00 -1:00) / Niabi Zoo Earth Day ~ Protect our endangered and threatened Species ~ weekend April 20/21) Attend Bi-State Event (Sarah Gardner)
- Expanding our networking to local colleges, specifically their environmental groups, professors teaching courses in environmental science, and administrative staff who control the college's energy systems.
- Meeting with Iowa and Illinois state legislatures and federal representatives and meeting w/ volunteers from specific districts to join us when we meet with congresspersons. We will listen and share our concerns about environmental issues.
Get ready for the 2020 U.S. Senate elections – It is essential that we have Senators who take positive action to address climate change before the 2020 elections. Climate change should not be a partisan issue!
We will continue to educate Americans about the growing dangers of climate change and the many climate solutions that work, and ways to take action to demonstrate leadership in environmental sustainability. The Fourth National Climate Assessment outlines growing damage from climate change to the economy including agriculture, infrastructure, health, and water.
