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, we provide the resources and space to think about the ways that climate change disadvantages some communities more than others.
The inaugural Climate Prep Week was celebrated in 2018, and featured contributions from dozens of community partners throughout greater Boston, including...
The Boston City Council, the Boston Climate Action Network, the Boston Public Health Commission, several branches of the Boston Public Library, the Boston Student Advisory Council, the Boston Latin School's YouthCAN, the Cambridge City Council, the Cambridge Public Library, the Cambridge Community Development Department, the Climate Action Business Association, Eastie Farm, Friends of the Middlesex Fells, Green Cambridge, Greenovate Boston, the Harborkeepers, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, Mothers Out Front, the Mystic River Watershed Association, the New England Aquarium, Sierra Club Massachusetts Chapter, Speak for the Trees Boston, UMass Boston's Sustainable Solutions Lab, "What's up Eastie?", Youth on Board and more.
