One-to-One Training – Wednesday, March 21, 2012, 6:00-6:45 PM (precedes our monthly meeting)
Power is a Product of Relationship. That paramount community organizing principle will help SanDiego350.org fulfill our calling to build a powerful climate change movement in San Diego County. The most fundamental act of building relationship is the one-to-one, a visit with someone to discover each others’ stories and values. It is the most effective way to discover what people care about and what they are willing to act on, to discover and cultivate future leaders, and to forge the networks of people that will be an influential force for political action on climate change. Learn how to conduct a productive and rewarding one-to-one and help us reach out to members of the community and grow our movement. The training is led by SD350’s own Pete Hasapopoulos who is an experienced community organizer. At the SDSU Student Organization Annex on the SDSU campus, 5141 Campanile Dr., SD 92115. Some parking available at meters, not enforced after 6pm. Additional street parking available on Montezuma Ave.

City of San Diego Climate Mitigation & Adaptation Plan Meeting – Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 2:00-4:00 PM
Join us to voice your concerns about the draft “CMAP” that the City of San Diego is poised to adopt in San Diego. The plan, which the city is required to undertake in order to plan how it addresses climate change, fails to reduce greenhouse gases to meet state goals, and fails to address what will need to be done to adapt to the changes that are already happening in our area, including more intense and frequent coastal flooding, wildfires, water shortages, and heat waves. We need folks to be present at the CMAP meeting in committee to submit comments, hold signs, and speak before the council committee. More info on the CMAP is here. This meeting of the City council’s Natural Resources and Culture Committee has been delayed already and could be delayed again, so please let us know if you are interested in helping and we’ll send you talking points and let you know the final date and time. It will take place at the City Council’s committee room, City Administration Building, 202 C Street, San Diego, 12th Floor. Contact us to volunteer.
