How are Sunday Assembly chapters recognizing Earth Day?

SA Atlanta recently uploaded their Climate Change themed April 2019 Assembly. Dr. Kim Cobb, climate scientist and professor from Georgia Tech was the speaker for her third time! She discussed how Climate Change applies to so much more than global temperature: our political climate is hostile to solutions, and our social climate is fragmented and disillusioned. Sunday Assemblies are moments to gather together, relish the lives we lead, and get motivated to act!

SA London met this past Sunday and discussed How To Have More Fun By Flying Less with Anna Hughes from Flight Free UK

On May 3rd, 8:25AM PST, SA Nashville will be holding a Climate Change themed Assembly.

And this past January Tim Oey spoke to SA Silicon Valley about his cross-country bike ride to talk to people about reducing our waste (zerow.org)
