A key working group of the SLO Climate Coalition will be presenting a workshop in the afternoon at the Central Coast Bioneers Conference. The Micro-Community Collaborative (MCC) is a grassroots people’s movement that educates and empowers San Luis Obispo County locals to meet the challenges of climate change. The goal of the movement is to create and foster collaboration in building a sense of belonging, resiliency, and environmental conservation.
MCC working group members Kelly Fisher, Kristen Hazard and Lisa Altieri will explain MCC’s bottom-up approach will create sustainable neighborhoods – one Micro-Community at a time – through community building programs, resource and education sharing, and advocacy. They will demonstrate the Bright Action web-based platform that makes it easy to help communities take simple, everyday actions to make an impact.
In a just and sustainable society no community can be sidelined from climate change adaptation. This inspiring and solutions-oriented closing program will inspire you to roll up your sleeves and get involved in protecting this beautiful area we call home.
