Climate Week on Martha’s Vineyard kicks off on Sunday, May 8 and will run through May 14. Climate Week is a part of the Climate Action Plan, and will include numerous events across the Island. Save the date for these Bluedot-hosted events:
How to Decarbonize Your Home
On Monday, May 9, learn how to decarbonize your home (whatever it’s size and wherever you are on your eco journey) at the West Tisbury Library. Marc Rosenbaum, engineer and founder of EnergySmiths, will guide us toward cutting emissions by reducing loads, converting to heat pumps, and switching to renewable energy. Learn more.
Retreating from the Shore: Time to Start the Conversation
Also on May, 9, join a panel of experts talking about retreating from the shore – why, when, and how. Sea levels are rising. Soon, they’ll rise faster. Is it time to retreat from the shore? How do we decide where to adapt and where to retreat? In this moderated conversation, climate planners and scientists will discuss beach and salt marsh loss, projects that have successfully mitigated for coastal change (Squibnocket and the Gay Head Lighthouse), explore ideas, and take audience questions. Learn more.
The Joy of Cooking for a Healthy Planet — Sold Out!
Grand Finale at the Grange
Join us on May 14 for a finale event at the Grange Hall featuring an assortment of climate action information, giveaways, activities, a film screening hosted by the MVFF, an aquaculture and raw bar, an electric vehicle fleet, music, and a short presentation on the MV Climate Action Plan. Bluedot Living will be on hand to answer questions, listen to story ideas, and share our magazines. Learn more.
