Event Description

Each year, the City of Bellingham organizes ALL IN for Climate Action Week as an opportunity to celebrate the knowledge and resources our community has to offer when looking for solutions to address global climate change at the local level. The week is full of events within Whatcom County hosted by individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, and governments that want to help Bellingham achieve its climate action goals.

Climate Action Week 2022 will take place September 19-25, with a kickoff event hosted by the City on September 18. Find information at ALL IN for Climate Action Week - City of Bellingham (cob.org)

This year’s Climate Action Week theme is Inspiring Community Action Through Climate Conversations.

Climate change affects every person and entity in our communities. Last year alone, our home experienced a debilitating heat wave, poor air quality from wildfire smoke, and devastating flooding – events that were all intensified by climate change. These events were unprecedented in the ways they struck our communities. In some instances, they forced us to adapt and rebuild. And although the ways in which we each experience climate change may look different, these experiences leave us with something in common – stories. Whether stories of hardship or stories of hope, we likely all have experiences to share about climate impacts and solutions.

During this year’s ALL IN for Climate Action Week events, we invite our community to share, learn, and have conversations about individual experiences with our changing climate and local solutions so that we can learn from one another. It is through these conversations that we can inspire meaningful and lasting climate action in our community.
