The League of Women Voters of Piedmont collaborates with Piedmont Connect to host a speaker series focused on understanding climate.
Piedmont’s two leading environmental education and advocacy organizations have jointly developed a Climate Speaker Series launching in September 2022 and running through May 2023.LWVP website
The Climate Speaker Series will serve to educate constituents on a range of important topics to improve our understanding of the causes (sometimes surprising), perils (sometimes not fully recognized), and solutions to ongoing environmental pollution and climate disruptions.
The series begins on September 7 with Sara Paul from Watch Duty to speak on wildfire mitigation in the Bay Area. Paul is a wildfire mitigation consultant who manages Sonoma County Fire Updates, established on Facebook at the start of the 2017 Tubbs Fire. The site has become a critical resource for vegetation fires, threatening weather and evacuation preparedness.
The series will continue on October 19 with “How Textiles Affect Climate Change” featuring Rebecca Burgess of Fibershed, and follow up on January 18 with “Sustainable Groundwater Management in California: The Challenges Ahead” with Paul Gosselin of the California Department of Water Resources.
All events will be held from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Zoom. Please click the following link to register and learn more:
