Inter-Generational Climate Change Discussion

Inter-Generational Climate Change Discussion Online

The library and Climate Action Net will co-sponsor an inter-generational community conversation about climate change on Saturday March 20th at 4 PM. This conversation will be an opportunity for different generations to come together to understand the ways in which they view the current climate crisis and discuss potential ways to turn this conversation into action. Moderator Rob Shetterly will pose questions to participants allowing them to explore how they view climate change and how it affects them, before being separated into breakout groups for more intimate discussion. The breakout groups will allow all age groups to share their unique perspectives on climate change and action before returning to the larger group for a final discussion.

Climate Action Net (CAN) is an island and peninsula association committed to keeping climate concerns at the forefront of local public conversations. They advocate for science-based climate policy and work with local youth to inspire and engage a younger generation in these important issues.

Rob Shetterly is a Maine based artist known for the collection Americans Who Tell the Truth. Since begining this collection, Rob has engaged in a wide variety of political and humanitarian work, often with the people whose portraits he has painted. Recently, Rob worked with Climate Action Net to lead a workshop in which Deer Isle and Stonington students were able to create paintings of their reflections on climate change.

All are welcome, though space is limited and registration is required to receive the Zoom link to attend. Register here on our interactive calander or by calling the library at 374-5515.
