What is Climate Action Night?
CAN is an event dedicated to educating the community about current legislation related to climate change and sustainability.
Groups of high school and college students, either working on their own or guided by a mentor, select a piece of climate legislation or other important climate action to research. At CAN, each group presents a prepared slide show on their topic, providing attendees with the necessary relevant information and what steps they can take to actively make a difference.
Topics include California State Senate and Assembly legislation, local city and county ordinances, recycling and energy efforts, public banking and more. The event will have live Spanish translation.
For Presenters & Mentors
All important links and instructions can be found on the CAN Presentation Slide Show Template.
Climate Action Night: What to Expect
For SRJC CAN Attendees
On April 21st at 5:30pm, join us for a Zoom meeting, where student groups from local high schools, SRJC and SSU will present on:
- California State Assembly or Senate bills
- Local county and city policies
- Other climate change movements, actions and petitions.
- With simultaneous Spanish language translation
Each presentation will be approximately 5 minutes and will include links and contact information so that members of the public can join the lobbying efforts to get these changes enacted. The links are also available on the website, so you can easily find them afterwards.
After CAN, members of these student groups will go on to meet privately with Sonoma County state legislators: Senator Mike McGuire and Assemblymember Marc Levine, JimWood, and Cecilia Aguiar- Curry. Finally, these student groups may go on to present their issue to community groups in Sonoma County.
The event will have live Spanish translation.
CAN is not the only sustainability-related event in town! If you’d like to get involved further we have the Earth Day Street Mural event and a Bike Event!
