Inaugural Climate Café
Sallan's Executive Director Nancy Anderson attended the Inaugural Climate Café — a pilot project for a small discussion format recently hosted by It's Easy Being Green, a neighborhood climate change education and action group in the TriBloomingdale area of the Upper Westside.
The limited invitation group featured three students from the Climate and Society Masters program at Columbia University. This EarthInstitute education program focuses on society's impact on climate and climate's impact on society, educating students on how to explain climate science to the public. IEBG members learned some science and students got to practice their communication skills.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead
