Ann Arbor, Michigan Chapter

The Ann Arbor Area chapter was approved early in 2017. We mix both activist and educational activities with opportunities to socialize in order to build a strong community. Our primary focus is local issues, working in conjunction with partner climate organizations. We are currently working on a pilot project, called “More Composting, More Carts!” is the first recipient of a new grant program, “Sustaining Ann Arbor Together.”  The project seeks to increase the use of Ann Arbor’s composting program, divert waste from landfills, and educate residents about the value of composting,

Maryland Chapter

maryland chapter

After last year’s Elders Climate Action Day gathering, one of the attendees returned to her retirement apartment complex and started to talk with the other retirees about taking action on climate change.  A small group came together and formed the Maryland Chapter last summer. Since then they have worked on a number of projects including: voter registration, training and then reaching out to neighbors and other apartment communities to increase our voter rolls, tabling at the county GreenFest, and working with one of ECA’s partners to protest the funding of pipelines to carry fracked gas, a potent source of harmful greenhouse gasses.
