Community Conversation: Restore Our Earth

2021-2022 Community Association
Community Conversations Program: Restore Our Earth
Fall Program: Be a Climate Champion in Our Community
Wednesday, November 3, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Marin Horizon School Library and Zoom
At Marin Horizon, environmental stewardship is deeply rooted in our history, and is an integral component of our mission to encourage students to be confident, creative individuals who are responsible to each other, the community, and the world.
To further our mission toward social justice, in particular, environmental stewardship, the Community Association has created a series of events called Community Conversations to engage our community around the goal of environmental responsibility. 
The theme for this program is Restore Our Earth, and the Fall session–which culminates in an interactive discussion forum on November 3rd–will focus on how each of us can become a climate champion in our community. We hope our November 3rd event will ignite a conversation and kick-start action toward our long-term sustainability plan, both on campus in our greater community.
Our discussion will be led by a panel of local environmental experts and inspiring leaders in the community: Jonathan Marshall, Harita Kalvai, and Al Grumet

Jonathan Marshall is a climate activist and author living in San Anselmo. He is former economics editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, and a member of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Economics Policy Network.
Harita Kalvai is a youth climate activist living in San Rafael. She is a junior in the Marin School of Environmental Leadership at Terra Linda High School. Harita leads the Youth Action Team of the Marin Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby. She is passionate about poetry and plays tennis for her high school team.

Al Grumet is a climate activist and artist living in Mill Valley. He is the parent of 8th grade Marin Horizon student Gus Grumet. Al is the Associate Director of Art Works for Change, and is part of the leadership team of several local grassroots environmental organizations including the Marin Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Sustainable Mill Valley, and Green Change. 
We will also hear from Upper School science teacher, Mo Poxon, and other Marin Horizon climate crusaders about their efforts and how they are forging the path for our kids.
For anyone who would like to learn more about the climate crisis, we have curated a selection of resources, appropriate for all ages and interest levels. (Extra reading is not a prerequisite to joining the conversation!)
Join us as we discuss the importance of climate action:
  • what we are doing at Marin Horizon to educate our students about this issue
  • what we are doing as a school to take us further down the path toward sustainability
  • what you can do as an individual to play a role in our communal mission of sustainability
Come ready to share your own experiences and climate actions!
