Come to the West Coast Convergence for Climate Action
July 28th – Aug. 4th River's Turn Farm (Coburg, Or)
We can find strength in people power and work together towards building the movement for sustainability we need to confront corporate-driven climate change. Come join in!
The Convergence will be 8 days of Low Impact Living and High Impact Action. Activities will include skill shares, sustainability demonstrations, direct action, community organizing, and loads of entertainment, like dance parties and performances. In addition, we'll engage in brainstorming and strategy sessions on issues facing our region, such as massive fossil fuel infrastructure development, deforestation, growing food prices, and rising transportation costs.
People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to join the global movement for earth-centered and community-based solutions to climate change. The convergence will offer free camping, childcare and activities for toddlers and up, and meals (with a suggested donation of $10/day).
Join or start a mass bike ride to the event, hop on a daily grease-powered shuttle bus from Portland, jump in a shuttle from the S.F. Bay Area, organize a caravan from your community. Just get here!
