ALL IN for Climate Action Week is an annual celebration of the knowledge, progress, and resources our community has to offer when looking for solutions to address global climate change at the local level. The events will take place September 19-25 within Whatcom County, hosted by individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments that want to help Bellingham achieve its climate action goals.
The theme of this year’s Climate Action Week is Inspiring Community Action Through Climate Conversations. The WTA Kids Art Contest will invite kids to share how they celebrate Earth with their drawings.
Kids will create their art during the event. The contest is free to enter, and all materials will be provided. The winning submissions will be scanned, enlarged, printed on vinyl, and displayed on electric buses. The contest is open to kids in Whatcom County who are 10 years old or younger.
