Seeding the Clean Energy Future!

Saturday, December 12, 1-3 pm
Vaughan Fellowship Hall at CUCC
Bring signs and wear green if you can!

Join us as we gather the day after the Paris climate talks end in solidarity and with the energy of thousands of people across the world sending a message that the people are committed to a just climate future and leading the way to a 100% renewable transition!

We will hear from speakers about solar energy and learn about actions we can take to help North Carolina move away from fossil fuels. There will be a time for reflection, when people will be given paper to write thoughts on: what are you doing to keep fossil fuels in the ground, or what are you doing to transition to renewable energy, or what are you doing for peace, or what are you doing for justice, for fair wages, for voting rights, for clean water, for regenerative food, for healthcare and more. We’ll take those pieces of paper and put them in a pot filled with dirt to be composted in the children's Plant-a-Row for the Hungry garden. Seeding the Clean Energy Future!

[CUCC's Justice in a Changing Climate Task Force has been working on this project and our own Skip Stoddard will make a brief presentation about CUCC's solar panels.]

We’ll end with people gathering on the corner of the church property on Wade Avenue and Dixie Trail holding our signs saying: Honk for clean energy, Honk for solar, Protect Mother Earth, Keep it in the Ground, and other creative signs people bring!
