On July 29, 2010, ECCo brought five partner organizations from the Energy Action Network and the Chicago Cultural Alliance to the Museum to learn about climate change and share stories about climate action in their communities. Participants visited the Climate Change exhibit and spent time in the Chicago Climate Action Room, which highlights how Chicago is leading the way in developing an integrated regional approach to climate action that focuses on human and natural communities. Participants then gathered in The Maori House to share stories about their residents’ climate actions through the ECCo-led project, “Telling Our Stories: Creating Green Communities.”
