FISH OF SANCAP invites the community to an informational discussion on the climate crisis, led by Maxine Lobel of Elders Climate Action (ECA).  The discussion, offered virtually, will be held on Thurs., Jan. 27 beginning at 3:00pm. To obtain Zoom log-in instructions, please contact FISH, 239-472-4775

The mission of Elders Climate Action is to mobilize elders throughout the United States to address climate change. They are dedicated to using the power of their caring, wisdom and numbers to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet. Maxine Lobel, ECA, will introduce the all-volunteer organization and discuss how they work to inform, inspire, and engage others to take action on the climate crisis. Lobel is the Florida State Co-Leader of ECA, a national organization of thousands of elder climate activists committed to a non-partisan effort to end the climate crisis and build a just and sustainable future for our children, our grandchildren, and all life.

After a career as a licensed clinical social worker, yoga and meditation teacher, Maxine retired to Florida with a passion to help make the world better and particularly, to protect our Earth for future generations. She is committed to changing people’s awareness about the seriousness of the climate crisis through education and awareness campaigns as well as being a dedicated activist working on local, state and federal initiatives.

“The effects of climate change, including rapid sea level rise and extreme weather events are being felt all over the world,” notes Jennifer Pagano, Education & Outreach Director, FISH. “I feel it is important to not only get informed but to also get involved with protecting our planet, through awareness, education and action.”
