An Evening of Environmental Awareness will take place at First Church West Hartford on April 13.
Submitted by First Church West Hartford
The world community is coming together under the Paris Agreement, a new collective push against climate change. The formal agreement is between countries, but there are many options for anyone who wants to participate, whatever their skills, interests, talents, and available time.
Patrick Cage, formerly working with climate communications at MACUCC, will talk about exciting global developments at the United Nations climate conference in Paris this past December. He will discuss how anyone can be a part of the ambitious project to tackle climate change, one of the most complex global challenges people have faced. He will share under-considered ways to help stop climate change, focusing on particular areas and actions where individual participation can be especially important.
First Church West Hartford has earned an award from the United Church of Christ (UCC) CT Conference as a Green Church, and this event is sponsored by the church’s ‘Green Team’ workgroup.
To date, over 10 percent of the UCC churches in Connecticut have qualified for a Green Church award.
The event will take place in the auditorium in First Church West Hartford, 12 South Main St., on Wednesday, April 13, at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public, and there is also free parking behind the church. Please enter the lot from Farmington Avenue, and use rotunda entrance to enter the auditorium.
