November Climate Cafe - Nov 20

2 pm – 3 pm

Join SanDiego350’s vibrant youth team for a laid-back climate café, where you will have the space to discuss climate topics, engage in social activities, and take action!

It’s Indigenous Heritage Month! In our 11/20 climate cafe, we’ll work to unlearn the unfactual history we’ve been taught. It’s important we all recognize the contributions Indigenous People make toward sustainability and strive to learn from them. We’ll follow that with time to discuss the issue, actions we can take, and ways to honor their legacy.

Urge the San Diego City Council to Support Phasing Out Oil Extraction in California

Our home is on fire! Solving the climate crisis starts with keeping fossil fuels in the ground. Youth v. Oil is asking the San Diego City Council to pass a resolution calling upon CA Governor Newsom to take steps including: stop issuing new oil drilling permits, develop a plan to end oil drilling in the state, and create safety zones around existing sites. (The San Diego Unified School Board and San Diego County Board of Education have already passed the resolution.)

Join our Eco-Club Coalition

The Eco-Club Coalition (ECC) welcomes high school environmental clubs from across the country. The ECC is designed to help you establish a new eco-club or take your existing club to the next level. We provide you with resources and mentorship.
