Imagine. Imagine a climate-solved Arlington.
Join us Saturday, February 12 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. for hot chocolate (bring your own mug), s’mores, and get inspired to imagine and act to create a climate-solved future.
The urgency of climate change can be overwhelming. However, imagining a future without a problem can inspire you to act now. So, inspired by author Bina Venkataraman’s idea of the Optimist’s Telescope, let’s take a look through the telescope 50 years into Arlington’s future and imagine that we see an Arlington that is successfully combating climate change. What would Arlington look like? What does Arlington look like?
Join us February 12th: Imagine.What would a climate-solved Arlington look in 50 years? First, grab some hot beverages (bring your reusable mug!), make some s’mores by the campfire, and get inspired by listening to excerpts from literature that imagine the possibilities of a climate-solved future. Follow the trail to the future and learn about local community organizations’ climate action programs. Then, contribute your own solutions for the climate problems facing Arlington. All ages are welcome. There will be activities for kids.
