Whether or not you could be with us live in Washington, you can still be a part of Grandparents Climate Action Day 2015. Get the full recap on what happened by viewing the webcast, recorded live the evening of September 10th at the end of the event. Lots of folks across the country joined us via computer and gathered with other concerned elders in your communities to listen to the webcast and discuss next steps.

The webcast featured recorded highlights from keynote speakers Dr. James Hansen, Climate Scientist, and Activist Lynne Twist. Elder activists reported out on their experiences of the day, and we had a video of our flash mob at Union Station!
