All of Belfast Climate Dialogues Marks 3 Years of Climate Engagement Efforts

Description

All of Belfast Climate Dialogues to hold final presentation and celebration, August 29th 

BELFAST — Tuesday, Aug. 29, join the All of Belfast Climate Dialogues (ABCD) team, Sarah Kirn, Misty Mallar and librarian Brenda Harrington, as they highlight their efforts of the past three years to engage the community in conversations about climate resiliency. The event will take place in Abbott Room of the Belfast Free Library; 5 - 5:45 p.m. reception with light refreshments; 5:45 - 7 p.m. presentation followed by time for conversation.

In 2020, the Belfast Free Library won a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services for the All of Belfast Climate Dialogues, a Community Memory project. The grant was to develop educational programs and facilitate conversations among a broad cross-section of the Belfast community about climate change. Part of the grant was to create an archive of Belfast area residents’ observations, concerns and hopes about climate change impacts in our region at this critical time.

To accomplish this the ABCD project designed informative web pages and hosted a series of educational programs on climate change. From 2020-2023, ABCD has held over 40 educational programs and community climate conversations. You can find these on the YouTube ABCD playlist, the event summaries, and highlighted in the ABCD archive. A tour of all of the archived resources on the website will be included in the presentation.

Although the funding for the ABCD grant is ending in August 2023, the Library will continue offering educational programs on the climate crisis and serve as a resource for climate change topics and issues.

“Please join us to reflect and celebrate, and to recognize the many local organizations we have partnered with on education and climate action,” said ABCD, in a news release.
