Report on Roadmap to Environmental Action event of Nov. 13, 2019

On a cold, snowy Wednesday evening, 132 chairs fill Swansea Town Hall. Five banners hang on the wall (from left to right):
     1. Preserving Nature
     2. Food & Agriculture
     3. Consumption & Waste
     4. Transportation
     5. Buildings
These are the sign-up sheets the PHP4 Climate Action Steering Committee prepared. As people trickle in, they walk up to the sheets and check mark those issues most important to them. On each seat lays a “Really Great Climate Action” printout, created by Chris Winter.
