Climate Preparedness Week

What is Prep Week?

During September 24–30 each year, we mark Climate Preparedness Week, dedicated to learning, service, and actions that better prepare our communities for extreme weather events. By coming together to host events, we provide the resources and space to think about the ways that climate change disadvantages some communities more than others. To learn more about how you can participate, get in touch with us here.

The second annual Climate Prep Week will be celebrated in September of 2019, and will feature a variety of events with contributions from dozens of community partners throughout Massachusetts, including...

The Boston City Council, Boston May Day Coalition, the Boston Public Health Commission, the Cambridge City Council, the Cambridge Public Library, CultureHouse, Eastie Farm, several branches of the Massachusetts Library System, Mayor Narkewicz of Northampton, Speak for the Trees Boston, the Somerville City Council, UMass Boston's Sustainable Solutions Lab, and more.
