PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE!! Due to construction, we had to move the meeting this month.

In the first part of our meeting, 350 Austin’s own Rocky Boschert will be sharing his wisdom on divesting from fossil fuels and how to think about reinvesting in a clean energy future. Rocky has devoted his career as a financial advisor to helping clients “go fossil free” with their investments. Come ready to take notes and ask questions. http://www.texasorp.com/

The second half of the meeting will kick off with the premiere of Josh Allen’s song – composed just for us – “Not With My Money You Ain’t”!

There will be a variety of breakout sessions, including art and sign-making for the upcoming day of action against banks that fund fossil fuel projects.

Our monthly meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month, usually at Scholz Garten (although not this month), from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Children are welcome.

September Monthly Meeting Tues 9/19 at 6:30 pm

Although we did not meet in August, we were working hard to move several projects forward, including our goal for Austin Energy to be 100% renewable. And, of course, we continue to help the victims of Harvey.

It’s now time to re-group and plan actions to fight the climate change that is super-charging the hurricanes and wildfires now devastating many parts of the planet.

It will be a jam-packed agenda with updates and actions as well as opportunities for you to share your ideas. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Our monthly meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at Scholz Garten from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Children are welcome.

July Monthly Meeting Tuesday 7/18 at 6:30 pm: Putting Carbon Where It Belongs

July Monthly Meeting Tuesday 7/18 at 6:30 pm: Putting Carbon Where It Belongs

Join us for our July meeting which will feature a talk by Chris Searles of BioIntegrity.net:

Putting Carbon Where It Belongs: The Power of Globally Strategic, Biogenic Decarbonization or, How to Win on Climate Change Now

Climate change and species loss are spiraling out of control today. What’s the biggest, most actionable solution?

Protecting Earth’s most biodiverse ecosystems radically reduces global greenhouse gas pollution, protects enormous stored carbon reserves, minimizes extreme weather events, slows global warming, and much more. Earth’s oldest living systems are our greatest climate solution assets.

“BioIntegrity” was founded by Chris Searles in 2015 to promote the world’s most global environmental solutions. This talk will explain the connection between biodiversity and the climate, how protecting the web of life is our most complete climate solution, and where to go to be a part of the solution.

45 Minute Talk. 15 Minute Q&A. Visit biointegrity.net for more information and our Facebook Event page to invite your friends.

Our monthly meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at Scholz Garten. Children are welcome. We gather at 6:30 to eat and visit. The meeting will be called to order promptly at 7 p.m. and adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
