Campaign Highlights October 2021
Take a look at the highlights from Sierra Club Connecticut’s current campaigns and what we’ve been working on. As always, thank you to all of our volunteers—we couldn’t do this without you!
Art and Climate Change
What’s coming up next month for Sierra Club Connecticut? Find out in this note from our Chapter Chair, along with reflections on how we can motivate people to act on climate change. Join us, and share our love and concern for people, nature and our planet.
Climate Awareness Campaign Heats Up to Protect a Warming Planet
Sierra Club Connecticut continues the Climate Awareness Campaign, along with other allies, urging Governor Lamont to take bold administrative action to combat the climate crisis. The campaign will continue through the month, collecting thousands of grassroots messages from all over the state.
The Infinite Game of Exploration
How do we engage with the world — with our community, with nature, with climate change, with our activism? Here is an invitation to explore the world from a different lens, as Jhoni Ada (our chapter’s Community Outreach Coordinator) shares her experiences and journey.
The Story of Soil
Our student intern, Shelley Rose, is working on a series of articles on soil health. In the first of the series, get a background on why soil health is important and how agriculture is affecting it. What is the history of our agricultural practices and how can we make them more sustainable?
Enjoy this poem written by the poet laureate of Ashford, CT, as we reflect on the end of summer turning to autumn, as well as how humans have affected the nature around us through climate change. What do you see in nature?
