What is Bellingham's ALL IN for Climate Action Week?
ALL IN for Climate Action Week is a celebration of all the knowledge, progress and resources our community has to offer when looking
for solutions to address global climate change at the local level. It will take everyone to make the shifts that need to happen, and our community is full of individuals, groups, organizations, businesses and governments that are making strides to build up our city as a leader in climate action. The week is scheduled to align with the United Nations (UN) Climate Action Summit and Climate Week NYC, September 23-29, 2019.
ALL IN for Climate Action Week events will be posted on the City's webpage and calendar and will receive additional promotional support such as social media posts, print and digital advertising. This is an opportunity to showcase all the work that is already happening in our community as well as generate new interests and reach diverse audiences through multiple entities.
