Graduates of the Southern Oregon Climate Action Now Master Climate Protector (MCP) course are certified when they turn their understanding about climate science into action by promoting understanding in the community or promoting real greenhouse gas reductions.
SOCAN’s November Monthly General Meeting will be devoted to an evening of inspiration as three MCP graduates who have performed above and beyond expectations discuss what they have been doing:
Erin O’Kelley Muck, owner of Ruby Slipper Designs – an award-winning web design agency that helps nonprofits achieve their online goals – is a 2020 MCP graduate. Erin is passionate about working to turn the tide on climate change.
Cynthia Holm, a professional Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) manager and educator for over 30 years, has experiences ranging from chemical manufacturing to military service. Cynthia, a 2021 graduate, currently serves as EHS Manager and Green Team Coordinator at the Providence Medford Medical Center. Cynthia will share her experiences helping Providence confront climate change!
Flavia Franco attended a book tour talk by Paul Hawken on his book- Project Drawdown. Hawken’s advice was to influence others – whatever that looks like. Flavia, a 2021 MCP graduate, is looking forward to how Hawken’s next book – Regeneration; Ending the climate crisis in one generation – will influence thinking and actions for years to come. Flavia will discuss her role in Southern Oregon Food Solutions, a spinoff of Project Drawdown and the Southern Oregon Pachamama Alliance Community.
SOCAN’s Master Climate Protector has been offered each year since 2017. The course provides participants a science-based understanding of the basics of climate change, its consequences, and what we can do to address the climate crisis. It runs for ten-weeks, with a weekly three-hour class. The 2022 session, starting on Wednesday February 9th, will be offered via ZOOM and is open for registration. In addition to our regular scholarship offer, this is the first year we have been able to include the Robert J. Scheelen Memorial Scholarship as a full scholarship. To honor Bob’s lifelong public service, preference will be given to applicants who have an interest in public service in the government arena.
