[ARCHIVED] Community Conversation on Climate Change


We invite you to participate in a Community Conversation on Climate Change on Monday, June 10 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Word of God Baptist Church, 6513 Queens Chapel Road, University Park, in the meeting hall. This will be a discussion of how collectively and individually we can work to mitigate climate change and move to a more sustainable future.

To help facilitate the conversation, we have assembled a small panel of scientists and local leaders to suggest how municipalities can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and better prepare for the unavoidable impacts of climate change. The panelists include:

Andrew Mackenzie Fellows, Moderator — National Center on Smart Growth, University of Maryland. Also, former Mayor, City of College Park.

Brenda Ekwurzel, Ph.D. — Senior Climate Scientist and Director of Climate Science, Union of Concerned Scientists.

Kate Stewart — Mayor, City of Takoma Park.

Ralph Bennett — Emeritus Professor, School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, University of Maryland.

Russ Dickerson, Ph.D. — Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, University of Maryland.

Please come, bring your friends and neighbors and join the conversation. We are in search of community-driven actions which will help us reduce the effects of climate change, and learn to adapt.

For more information, please email University Park Mayor Len Carey at or Councilmember David Brosch at
