On September 21st, thousands of communities around the country are coming together for what is expected to be the largest day of climate action in history. As world leaders gather in New York City, communities are gathering to urge world leaders to take action on climate change and ensure a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. Can you join us for the Peoples Climate March in Portland at 3:00pm to show support for a faster transition to cleaner energy?Read more
A big THANK YOU to the MRG Foundation.
The MRG (McKenzie River Gathering) Foundation just awarded grants to twenty-one social change groups across Oregon. Among those were five emerging groups, including Rogue Climate. These emerging groups are working throughout Oregon on a wide variety of issues. As they say at MRG, we are working towards a “Just and Joyful Oregon.” The $8,000 MRG awarded Rogue Climate is our first foundation grant and the largest single gift we’ve received so far.Read more
Clean Energy Day: a big success !
Despite rain, wind, and the occasional sun burst to dry us off, our own clean energy SUN lit up the event all afternoon!
For those that missed it, Rogue Climate put together a rocking' celebration of clean energy yesterday in Medford, Oregon. Over 800 people from the Rogue Valley made posters and over 300 people attended to rock out to local bands, sip on local brews, learn about local clean energy businesses, and participate in a 100 foot-wide art piece to make the statement that we are ready for local, cleaner energy. Did we mention it was completely powered by bikes? Check out the slideshow to get a taste of the day and like us on Facebook to see more photos.
More good jobs. Lower long-term energy bills. Support for local businesses. Clean air and water.
Those are the goals of Clean Energy Day, to be held at the Medford Commons on Sunday, May 4.
Yes, there will be food, live music and fun activities for all ages, including assembly of a giant sun made from artwork produced by hundreds of Rogue Valley residents of all ages.
But Clean Energy Day also has a practical purpose — to draw attention to ways our communities can benefit from greater use of cleaner energy and increased energy efficiency.Read more
