“After Paris: Now the Real Work Begins”
There is a Pittsburgh350 event tomorrow evening, where I’ll be discussing the COP21 proceedings with Mayor Bill Peduto and fellow activist Angela Wiley. Here’s a scrape from the Pgh350 announcement:
7:00 to 8:30 pm, Wednesday January 13
Human Services Building, 1 Smithfield St., Pittsburgh 15222
(Free parking behind the building off Ft. Pitt Blvd).
To all friends of Pittsburgh350
At this, our inaugural Pgh350 Monthly Meeting, we will first hear from three Pittsburghers who were in Paris during the COP21 Climate Conference in Paris. Serving on the panel will be Mayor Bill Peduto, Mark Dixon, and Angela Wiley.
Following a short break, we will learn of current campaigns that Pgh350 is supporting as a consequence of our discussion many of you participated in last September:
- City of Pittsburgh Divestment (Gabe McMorland)
- Chatham University Divestment Campaign (Cameron Heyder)
- Personal Divestment (Lucyna de Barbaro)
Interested friends are invited to sign-on to the above campaigns. They are also invited to participate in the following activity.
- Finally, we will collectively discuss how to translate the spirit of the COP21 conference to actions here in Pittsburgh during the week of May 7-15, in association with the world-wide ‘Break Free from Fossil Fuels’ campaign (see http://breakfree2016.org).
See you all on Wednesday,
Pgh350 steering committee
