Mass_Chapter.jpgWe are delighted that you are visiting the ECA-Massachusetts’ webpage.  Thank you for connecting!  We are very pleased that so many people want to learn more about our efforts.

ECA’s Massachusetts chapter will keep you connected to pro-climate activities happening both face-to-face and virtually.   Connect with us through an email to our chapter to let us know your particular interests.  We will also start sending you our monthly chapter newsletter.  Of course, you’ll be able to opt out of receiving material from us at any time.

You can also connect with us through Facebook:  Elders Climate Action – Massachusetts Chapter 

Our chapter meets monthly, usually around Boston, Brookline or Cambridge, and people drive to that destination from a number of locations in the Eastern part of the state, although we are moving strongly this year to start clusters of elder activists in communities all over Massachusetts.  We are also working on our virtual meeting skills to allow interested parties from Massachusetts and elsewhere to participate.  In the months ahead, chapters will be forming around the state.  We will be compiling the contacts we collected from your community and sharing those with folks who want to get involved as a way to stimulate these new local groups – with YOUR help!

FIRST ECA LOCAL CHAPTER HOLDS A MAJOR EVENT:  ART EXHIBIT EMPHASIZES CLIMATE CHANGE AT NEW ART CENTER

By Grady McGonagill, Hinda Blum and Perry Carrison, ECA Mass Chapter

In mid-December the Massachusetts chapter of Elders Climate Action sponsored “Our Climate Legacy: What Can I Do?”­-an art exhibit intended to provide an inspirational aesthetic encounter with climate change.  Hinda Blum, Massachusetts Chapter Member, who took the lead in conceiving and organizing the event (with the support of Perry Carrison, whom she met through ECA), had envisioned the exhibition this way: “As each person views the paintings, sculptures, photography and mixed media of five artists, they will witness the effects of the artists’ environmental perspectives.” Hinda and Perry hoped that this catalyst would instill a sense of urgency and passion in viewers, inspiring them to shape their own legacy by taking action on climate change, possibly even becoming more involved in an ongoing way to arrest the progress of climate change.
