YOU ARE INVITED: CLIMATE ACTION BUZZ – THURSDAY, SEPT 20 – 5:30-7:00
A suggestion emerging from a number of community events and conversations has been the idea that it is sometimes just nice to get together to celebrate and appreciate our common purpose.
The science of Climate Change offers a clear prospect for the future…when we think about water, about agriculture, about the future of the valley, what life is going to be like here for future generations, Climate rears its head.
We are, however, a community full of passionate and creative people envisioning and working to insure a Climate Resilient Ojai Valley. The Climate Action Buzz is a placeholder for us to casually network together and, like pollinators, share the climate action buzz that motivates and informs our journey as individuals, and as a community actively designing an environmentally sustainable future.
The genesis of the idea goes back to a panel discussion of environmental stewardship, hosted in August at the Ojai Retreat by the Agora Foundation, in which the leaders of Ojai environmental organizations such as the Green Coalition, CFROG, the OV Land Conservancy, the OV Defense Fund, C.R.E.W., the Center for Regenerative Agriculture, and others talked of the 21st-century challenges facing Ojai.
The panelists all expected the panel discussion to be enjoyable, but didn’t realize how energizing it would be. We need these conversations — to inspire each other, and to help each other.by sharing our success stories and our challenges.
The first Climate Action Buzz is booked at the TOPA MOUNTAIN WINERY on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. This is primarily an adult mixer, but the Winery is kid friendly and you can feel free to bring your own non-alcoholic refreshments.
Invite a friend, and take some time out of your busy day to schmooze with your peers, it doesn’t happen often enough.
