From the Charleston Climate Coalition…
“We’ve been hard at work putting together a meeting of climate minds that could serve as the Lowcountry’s response to the UN COP26 climate talks. Now we’re pleased to announce the Surge Sessions, an evening of short, impactful, and transformative climate stories and lessons.
Will you join us?
At the Surge Sessions, we’ll be digging in to a central question of our time: will the Lowcountry rise to meet the climate crisis? We want folks to leave feeling like they have a deeper, more holistic understanding of the climate crisis — its severity and inequities, and the creative and human forces rising to answer it — and in the end to feel energized to join the climate liberation movement.
Featuring stories and lessons from:
- Queen Quet of the Gullah Geechee Nation.
- Journalist Tony Bartelme of The Post and Courier
- Activist Cyrus Buffum of Friends of Gadsden Creek.
- Student activist Emma Abrams of the Sunrise Movement.
- Activist Belvin Olasov, Charleston Climate Coalition co-founder.
- Marine biologist Phil Dunstan of the College of Charleston.
- Engineer and photographer Jared Bramlett of the Mean High Water project.
The event is being held Wednesday November 10th at the American Theater — doors open at 6:30pm, event begins at 7. We also want this to be COVID safe for everyone involved, so please bring a mask and proof of vaccination.
We’re excited to be holding our first in-person event in a while, and we’d really love to have you there. Register at the link below, and invite your friends, families, and anyone else who you’d like to have tuned in to the climate fight! We need your help on this, too.”
