Subject: Build the Movement to Stop Global Warming! Boston Workshop

REGISTER NOW                    PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY!
July 22nd-24th, Boston, MA              Watch for our Flagstaff workshop in

Green House Network and Clean Air-Cool Planet, in partnership with the 
Massachusetts Climate Action Network, invite you to their fourth annual 
Building the Movement to Stop Global Warming summer workshop.

Keynotes Include: Eban Goodstein, author of The Trade-off Myth: Fact 
and Fiction about Jobs and the Environment; Film-makers Judith Helfand 
and Dan Gold (Blue Vinyl-- invited); Jonathan Pelto, Impact Strategies.

The conference will have a dual focus: SPEAKING and COMMUNITY ACTION

PROGRAM
Speaking Track: The Speaking track will help individuals develop a 
brief formal presentation on global warming.  Each individual signing 
up for the speaker track will:

presentation
     At the workshop, give presentation and participate in an intensive 
afternoon feedback session
     After the workshop, give at least five presentations on campuses, at

faith or business groups or other community venues in their region over 
the course of Fall-Spring 2005-2006.

Community Action Track: The Community Action track seeks individuals 
committed to development of grassroots climate education and direct 
action in their community.  Each individual signing up for the 
Community Action track will:
     Prior to the workshop, develop a goal for a community action project

aimed at promoting  a renewable energy purchase campaign, biodiesel 
use, wind-power development or other global warming solution
     At the workshop, participate in an in-depth, focused training
session 
on how to get started in organizing a community campaign/initiative, 
leaving the session with a formal plan for action
     After the workshop, organize a global warming action project within
a 
local town/campus/faith group or other community venue

Plenary sessions (for all participants):
     The political scene, the "new energy economy" - what they mean for 
local climate action	
     Science Update: Northeast Indicators of Climate Change 2005 report
     Global warming messaging
     Making the link between advocacy and action
     Engaging the faith community: Global warming as a moral issue
     And more?

90-min discussion panels)
o       Renewable energy purchase campaigns
