I am excited to announce that on Saturday, October 27, Charlottesville will be playing host to the largest climate action event of its kind in Virginia history. On that day, hundreds of grassroots activists, concerned citizens and local officials from across the state will be converging on our fair city for the 2007 Virginia Climate Action Conference, which will take place from 8:30am-4:45pm at Clark Hall at UVa.
The organizers of this event (full disclosure: I am one of them) have recruited a stellar cast of speakers and presenters and we hope that Charlottesville sets a good example by turning out a good number of attendees. Registration (before Oct. 20) is only $30, which includes breakfast and lunch, so please do come. To register, or for more info., go to www.VaClimateAction.org. Hope to see you there!
