Ideas for first team actions

What your community team or group decides to do together is up to you. Whatever you decide, let us know so we can support you and help amplify your story! We may also have current actions or issues being worked on by other teams in the network that we can share. 

Remember that although climate change can feel overwhelming, it's not your job to take it all on. Taking on one piece will inspire others to take on theirs. Then it starts to add up.

The best kinds of projects are time bound (you know when it's over), visible, and something your team members can reasonably pull off - even if that means recruiting others.

1) Support local youth climate organizing

2) Make your school district a climate champion

3) Put solar panels on your kids' school

4) Host a climate-themed event or rally for families

5) Work with your city council to take more action

6) Visit your elected officials as parents

7) Host a tree planting

8) Host a divestment forum

9) Organize a Kidical Mass bike ride

10) Other ideas? Brainstorm in your group.

In each case, be sure to tell your story in the local media and on social media. Let us know what you are up to so we can help amplify. Then, rinse and repeat!
