What can I do about the climate crisis on my own?
What can I do about the climate crisis joining with others?

Ann Arbor Mayor Christopher Taylor will start this teach-in by addressing how individuals and groups can participate in A2Zero — the City of Ann Arbor’s plan for achieving a just transition to community-wide carbon neutrality by 2030. Mayor Christopher Taylor will be introduced by Rabbi Josh Whinston of Temple Beth Emeth and the Reverend Anne Clarke of St. Clare’s Episcopal Church, the two clergy that represent the congregations housed in the Genesis building.

The agenda then moves to interactive break-out sessions. At 2:15, choose one from these three options:
What and How We Eat
Government Support to Help You Go Green
Local Advocacy Opportunities

At 3:10 choose from these three:
A Zero Waste Lifestyle and the Circular Economy
How Your Green Teams Can Take Action
Local Climate Justice

The Closing Session will be Finding the Best Leverage Points to Make a Difference, a presentation by Dr. Shelie Miller, Professor, Director, Program in the Environment; Jonathan W. Bulkley Collegiate Professor of Sustainable Systems; University of Michigan Distinguished Faculty Fellow in Sustainability.

The last hour of the Teach-In is dedicated to networking. Over 15 climate-focused non-profit organizations will staff tables to give event participants opportunities to connect and volunteer; free vegetarian snacks will be available.
