All in for Climate Action!  2021 Earth Week Celebration

Green Newton is sponsoring a week of fun and action for kids during Earth Week and we are kicking it off with a poster making event so you can show the world how you are All in for Climate Action!  
 
All you will need is paper and markers, crayons or other media of your choice to create your own poster design to display in a window of your home. The theme is “All in for Climate Action!” Join us on Monday, April 19 from 4-5pm and share your ideas while making posters together.  When you’re done, take a picture of your poster and send it to [email protected]. A selection of poster designs may be chosen to be featured in Green Newton’s e-newsletter and/or displayed in windows of local businesses.  This activity will be led by Green Newton’s Youth Leader and Newton North senior, Coral Lin. 
 
If you are interested in attending this free virtual event, please R.S.V.P. to [email protected] by April 17. For some good ideas for posters visit the Green Newton Take Action! tool.
