The Ecology Center hosts a wide range of events designed to get residents to take individual and collective action on climate change. We expose residents to pertinent information and solutions, and bring people together to build movements and push for positive change. Subscribe to or regularly check out our EcoCalendar, where all such upcoming events are listed, or contact Climate Action Coordinator Debra Berliner to learn about upcoming Climate Action events.
Solution Salons and Movement Building Events
Each quarter, the Ecology Center hosts a community event focused on particular climate change challenges and opportunities for action. Past Salons topics have included: fracking in CA, greenwashing, climate change and population growth, transit oriented development and climate justice, climate change education in public schools, climate action for kids, international climate action and the COP meetings, and more!
Climate Action Tours
The Ecology Center hosts Low CO2 Home Tours at EcoHouse, our demonstration home and garden in North Berkeley. We also host educational tours to other regional destinations relevant to climate change prevention or adaptation.
Climate Action Workshops
These three session workshop series starts with a small gathering of community members where participants swap information, resources, and solutions for taking action on climate change. They continue with a work party at a local organization, and end with a Climate Adaptation and Action Tour at EcoHouse.
