We knew that something needed to be done about climate action on campus. That’s why we created the Climate Action Movement Panel and Discussion: because we wanted to engage the community in Climate Action.
This event consisted of a panel discussing previous climate action in Ann Arbor and a group discussion to produce tangible, actionable goals to improve sustainability measures in Ann Arbor. We realized that the best way to work toward stronger climate goals was to receive input from the community. We worked with both student groups and community groups to crowdsource goals that students, University administration, and local government could take to improve environmental sustainability.
Since we will all be impacted by climate in the future, it is important to us to start a movement for climate action in a united front – that was the aim of this event.
