Speaker Series
CEC offers free “Green Programs on Hot Topics” on current issues that generate conversation and new ideas. Before COVID-19, these meetings were usually held at the Burlingame Public Library and attracted 50 to 100 people. The series has temporarily moved to Zoom. Recent programs have explored the impact of climate change on health, pivoting from COVID-19 to a sustainable future, the Green Monday movement, plastic pollution, gray water, fracking, sea level rise and native plant landscaping. Check our calendar for upcoming events.

Other Programs and Activities
In addition to the CEC speaker series, we feature other programs and activities of special interest. In 2017 we provided advocacy training for 100 individuals throughout the county who were working on a variety of issues, including environmental action. Other opportunities include delivering surplus food to shelters and needy groups with Peninsula Food Runners, participating in Bay cleanups, and working on countywide efforts to improve energy efficiency and transportation. Come to our meetings to learn more.
