All environmentally minded organizations and individuals are invited to join a Walk for the Earth on Earth Day, April 22 at 5:30 p.m. in Stevens Point.
Organizers Susan Zach and Karen Dostal hope to network as many groups as possible to amplify attention to climate change issues. “By joining our voices together we can help build momentum that will mobilize effective and timely solutions to our climate crisis,” said Zach.
Groups will meet at the Sundial on the UWSP campus. The walk will go from the Sundial to Division Street, and on down Main Street to the Square. There the marchers will turn around and head back to the Sundial. The estimated total walk time to be between one and 1.5 hours.
Rain date is April 23, same place and time.
Organizations are asked to carry a sign or signs that identify their group and their mission, as well as messages about climate change, the effects of climate change, and citizen actions and awareness of climate change.
The walk is scheduled to follow a keynote address by Ramez Naam. Naam is a well-known technologist, author and futurist who advocates for action on climate change. His talk begins at 4 p.m. in the Laird Room of the Dreyfus University Center (DUC) on campus.
