Innovative Community Engagement Working Group Comes Together for First Meeting of 2017


The Climate Science Alliance’s Green (Fun!) Team gathered last week to gear up for our innovative community climate events of 2017. All green team members shared updates and announcements from their organizations and received feedback for current projects. After partner updates, the green team launched into a collaborative brainstorming session to plan our biggest innovative community event of 2017, the Balboa Park EarthFair.

The Climate Science Alliance will be hosting a large climate and ocean themed space at the EarthFair. This space will host 20 organizations, an interactive community art project, an art exhibit, and music, dance, and storytelling performances. The purpose of this space is to attract people of all ages and teach them about the impacts of climate change in San Diego. Children will have the opportunity to complete an activity guide that encourages them to learn different ways to help the planet from each organization. Upon completion of the activity guide, children will receive a prize and be recognized as Climate Kids.

We appreciate all of the great ideas from our amazing partners and look forward to our next planning meeting for Balboa Park EarthFair in late February. Thank you Green Team!
