We would like to present Climate Change and Green Needham to each of these community organizations. Part of the presentation will be a call to action by members of the group individually and by the group as a whole, if appropriate. We also hope that some of the members as well as some of the organizations will be motivated to join the collaborative

If you see an organization here that you can help with, please contact Jim Glickman. Please also contact Jim if you know of an organization that is not on here that we should be reaching out to.

Needham Clergy Association

Michael Greis has talked with John Buehrens (First Parish) and through him reached out to the rest of the clergy association. We have had at least one worship community attend a meeting (Methodist) as a result, but we have discussed an initiative specifically for the houses or worship.

One idea is to sponsor an event featuring Interfaith Power and Light, inviting all the houses of worship to attend. (First Parish has offered to host.) I've done some of the legwork, but this is a great volunteer opportunity.
