Join Green Umbrella's Next Climate Action Webinars on 7/13 and 7/20

Now more than ever we need climate action at all levels of government. It's not just cities that can do this work—counties, states, and their constituents can make a huge difference! Join Green Umbrella and the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund on 7/13 from 12:00-1:00 PM for the next installment of the Regional Climate Action Lunch & Learn Series to learn more about how this year's candidates for County Commissioner and State Representative + Senate can address climate issues.

The webinar will cover tangible county-level action items across our 10-county OH-KY-IN region and highlight how candidates can build

climate into their platform and current bills. Register here today, and while you're at it learn more and register for the next webinar on 7/20 with the City of Cincinnati's Office of Environment and Sustainability!
