Climate Action 411 – Learn & Collaborate

During the Dan Huntsha’s keynote speech at this year’s Climate Action 411: Inspiring Hope Through Action the keywords heard were share, listen and collaborate — this represents the need to move from AND to OR — which is more hopeful than AND.

Huntsha emphasized that we need the change the conversation from whether or not climate change is real to what we can do about it. Climate change IS real; there is clear-cut scientific evidence to prove that climate change is happening now. But, we need to define the problems our communities face and work on tangible actions to tackle these problems.

Since the old ways haven’t worked, Huntsha suggests we try something new — what has worked and what hasn’t worked? Let’s travel on this journey together for the good of everyone not just you or me.

Entitled Inspired Hope Through Action, I left the conference with a sense of hope that there are people out there who are concerned about the future of our Earth and more people ready to take action ready to change the course — many from the grassroots level.

What can I do to protect what I love? Respond after the problem occurs and adapt, but then work on prevention – what can be done? This is a difficult step, but the results are much higher.

Share, listen and collaborate.
