What local, regional, and state projects can people work on now?
The climate crisis calls on us to continue our work in each community. There are many activities that individuals can do on their own or with groups in the area. Some of these include:
- Speak up about climate change by writing a letter to the editor of local newspaper to talk about the need for energy conservation, efficiency and renewables. Talk with your local legislators about these same issues.

- Get involved with the work of town energy committees in the North Quabbin region. To learn about the accomplishments of town energy committees see NQ Town Accomplishments GC… .
- Contact Governor Baker to ask him to speak out against new gas pipelines and support more renewable energy projects in the state.
