So let's work together

February In This Together Event: “Cheapskates”

Ice skate with us on February 13th, 2022 from 2-4 p.m. at Centennial Lakes Park Hughes Pavilion (7499 France Ave S, Edina, MN 55435). The 10-acres of groomed ponds are connected by narrow, meandering canals and make for a unique skating experience.

Before we skate, we will meet in front of the pavilion to discuss resources and clever ways to BE a “cheapskate” to reduce our use of plastic and lessen our impacts on the planet while also improving our health and saving money.

No skates? No problem! Attend the short info. session and We All Need Food and Water will rent them for you at the pavilion. There is no charge for this event but registration is appreciated.

Schedule

  • 2:00-2:30 p.m. Learn about the benefits and how to be a “cheapskate”
  • 2:30-4:00 p.m. Skate rental/open skating. Please note, we ask that you attend the “cheapskate” discussion. Also, we cannot guarantee that the pavilion has all sizes available to rent.

THE FUTURE IS NOW.

We need to act boldly because if we don’t stop burning stuff (mostly fossil fuels) our planet is estimated to be 6.5 °F warmer by the time today’s babies turn eighty. What would a 6-7 degree temperature increase mean? For perspective, the last time the planet experienced a 6.5 °F (3.6 °C) difference was the Ice Age. Mind-boggling. Terrifying. The great news is it’s not too late to build the future we want our kids to have. But we need to work together and implement changes this decade.

What we do

Education & Action

Climate for All events

Monthly events will bring diverse populations together in nature to join in crucial climate conversations. These two-hour events will offer enjoyable group activities (e.g., skating, horse-drawn wagon rides, swimming, and sailing) followed by informative climate education sessions focusing on practical solutions.

Circles

The climate crisis is the elephant in the room no one wants to address. It can seem so overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. Plans don’t generally turn into action without a little discussion beforehand. Starting a circle is as simple as talking to your inner circle about climate change solutions. The future depends on us taking action.
