Even as our country reels from unprecedented superstorms and forest fires, the federal administration abandons policies to reverse climate change. What can local governments, businesses and ordinary citizens do?

Find out at a one-day public conference hosted by Citizens’ Climate Education-NM (CCE-NM) on Saturday, October 28 from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Experts in science, economics and energy policy will provide evidence regarding why human-caused climate change must be addressed with urgency and describe a range of approaches to which any of us can commit. Presentations will be transmitted among sites in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Taos. Participants will be encouraged to discuss actions they can take together. The keynote speaker will be energy consultant and former Congresswoman Claudine Schneider (R-RI).

Online pre-registration, including box lunch, is $18 until October 22. After October 22, registration is $25. Doors open at 8:30am on October 28 at Monte del Sol Charter School, 4157 Walking Rain Road, in the Nave Ade subdivision of Santa Fe.

The Center for Contemporary Arts will screen the film Tomorrow on Thursday evening, October 26.
