Graphic of EarthThe Climate Crisis Action Team is a group of over 70 UUAA members and friends who share concern about climate change and seek to take actions, big and small, to move our planet toward a sustainable future.

We need new perspectives on climate action!

 On June 10, 2018, the Climate Action Group hosted a Climate Café, discussing the question:

How can we build an urgency-focused climate action program that will thrive, be sustainable and reflect our UU Principles?

The ideas generated in group discussions ranged from specific “what to do” both within UUAA and within the greater Ann Arbor area to thoughts on “how to do”. Read the Summary Report from the Climate Café.

 


Our Climate Crisis Action Group was one of the sponsors of the September 20th, 2019 Global Climate Strike rally in Ann Arbor.

The Climate Crisis Action Team has a relationship with the Ann Arbor Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby. Citizens Climate Lobby focuses on generating popular support for a carbon fee and carbon dividend, in which a fee would be placed on CO2-generating fossil fuels at the wellhead, mine, or point of import. The resulting collection would be distributed to the American people. The goal is to provide an economic foundation to promote reduced CO2 generation and development of sustainable energy sources. Monthly meetings are held at UUAA, generally on the first Saturday of each month at 12:45pm. See calendar for details.

The Climate Crisis Action Team also hosts occasional forums and events at UUAA.

We welcome new participants. We also welcome suggestions how we, as a group and as individuals, can support ACTION on dealing with climate change.
