This May, West Seattle CoolMom is beginning to discuss the topic of transportation and climate change. Our monthly meeting will be happening on Wednesday the 11th at 7pm at C&P Coffee, California Ave. SW just south of SW Findlay St.
The May agenda includes:
- Visitors from the Whale Trail organization who will be sharing with us information on community involvement for the whales that live in our neighborhood. They will also touch on how our transportation choices can effect Puget Sound and the health of whales.
- We will discuss the fundraiser that CoolMom has going on for the month of May around making alternative transportation choices. Part of this discussion will include brainstorming ways for families to get out of their cars and making personal pledges for what we each might try towards making a reduction in our transportation carbon footprint.
- Short video of an interview with a California climate/transportation researcher who touches on a number of key points for creating change in transportation systems and policies to have a positive impact on carbon output from transportation.
This should be a relatively relaxed meeting and would be a perfect opportunity for people unfamiliar with CoolMom to come and check us out.
Additionally, our agenda items this month would be a great introductory session for members of our community who are novice learners on this topic and would like to begin gaining more knowledge about climate change and transportation. Please forward this meeting invitation to other West Seattle moms you think might be interested in more information about CoolMom.
