It’s Hot, Everything Is Fine

Each month, Amp Club selects a topic to engage with more deeply, with the goal of amplifying the work of experts on the topic. We put together a small program of events to attend — and we’d love for you to join us.

Since September is Climate Week, and there’s a wealth of events happening, we’re kicking off the fall with “It’s Hot, Everything Is Fine,” a curated event series focused on the climate crisis. We’re amplifying two events that highlight inspiring leaders working toward climate justice, and planning two local field trips in Brooklyn to help us better understand our immediate urban environment.

If you’d like to join us, events will be free (Amp Club will provide donations to any events that have fees) and we‘ll host a meal / coffee / happy hour afterwards to debrief.
