Green Team Cascade Climate Connection Cafe
July 20, 2012
Months of planning went into the Cascade Climate Connection Café. The theme of the café event was "Linking Ideas to Actions." The event was based on a world café-style model to promote discussion and the flow of ideas on climate change and how it can be addressed by North Cascades National Park on a grassroots level. Hosted by the North Cascades National Park's Green Team, who of course provided tasty treats and coffee for attendees, the goal of the event is to bring out ideas which can be acted upon and even implemented by the end of the year.
