ALL IN for Climate Action Week is a week of events within Whatcom County that celebrates the knowledge and resources our community has to offer when looking for solutions to address global climate change at the local level.
For the third annual Climate Action Week, events this year will focus on providing opportunities for our community to take impactful actions that help Bellingham reach its climate goals. Together, our small actions create a big impact.
