This interactive workshop allows each participant to reflect on their own understanding of climate change, its impacts on our environment, and how to become engaged in crafting solutions. Instead of using a "wait and see approach" to the problem, the audience is encouraged to gain a better grasp of the science and to see how communities in Rhode Island are being affected. This then lays the framework for transitioning to action both on a local and national level.
