Earth Day FUN- Raiser

By Mark Wille

The "Climate Action Museum" invites you to join the 1st Earth Day Fun-Raiser & Dance.

Spread the news for the April 22, 2023 event. This "Chicago Style" evening is for you to enjoy and to raise the funds needed for the Museum. The mission of the Climate Action Museum is to activate a tipping point on climate mitigation in the Chicago region through education, stimulating critical thought, and to inspire and facilitate direct action. Executive Summary The Climate Action Museum is a five-year project launched by a core group of sustainability leaders with the goal of achieving a regional tipping point in the campaign to move away from fossil fuels.

The core asset of the project is a 2,100 s.f. immersive exhibit that is being built out in a vacant tenant space in the lobby of 300 S. Riverside Plaza. Climate Museums are rare: at the CAM soft-opening on June 1st, 2023 it will be only the seventh globally.

4. A guest experience supported by a well-trained group of volunteer docents.
