Eleven years ago, the Bellingham City Council adopted Legacies and Strategic Commitments that include reducing the City’s impact on climate change. Two years ago, Council approved an update to the City’s Climate Protection Action Plan, renewing Bellingham’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

To continue this work and build upon the success of the first ALL IN for Climate Action Week in 2019, the City is organizing this educational and fun week again this year between Sept. 20-27 while following guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Several organizations, governments and businesses in the community have partnered to create a list of events for all ages and diverse interest groups, including three events hosted by the City. City events include both kick-off and closing celebrations as well as a film festival competition, “Climate Action in 90 Seconds.” All Whatcom County residents are invited to submit videos between Sept. 9-16. The top 25 videos will be featured at a virtual event on Wednesday, Sept. 23 with the possibility of winning one of two cash awards.

The full schedule of events includes:
