November 6, 2011 - Washington, DC Tar Sands Action Continued - Encircle the White House (ES)
GWEN once again traveled to Washington to join the organizers at tarsandsaction.com. We continued to put pressure on President Obama to stop the environmental and climate devastation that will be caused by the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This time we peacefully joined hands, encircled the White House and sent a powerful message to Obama that he must keep fighting for the climate and our future. In fact, we'd like to see him give a "State of the Climate" address to inform Americans that global warming is real, serious, and a tremendous opportunity to re-invigorate U.S. global leadership.

October 10, 2010 - White House Work Party in Washington, DC(EO, ES)
On Sunday, October 10th, GWEN was in our nation's capital to orchestrate a 1pm climate-oriented work party as part of a 350.org-inspired day of action. We invited other local, national and international climate organizations to help us symbolically and non-violently help President and Michelle Obama “green up” the White House. We brought insulation, CF and LED light bulbs, solar panels (like President Carter once had), and a wind turbine. We suggested bike racks, more bike lanes, geothermal power and MORE to President and First Lady Obama.
Among the many climate heroes who spoke at this event are famed climatologist Dr. James Hansen, illustrious Bush Administration climate science whistle blower Rick Piltz, celebrated Climate Progress blogger Joe Romm, and acclaimed "Plan B 4.0" author Lester Brown.
Beyond getting the White House green, to serve as an example for other Americans, our key request of President Obama was to please be a strong, protective, proactive leader, informing misinformed citizens about the very real, serious and urgent need to deal with climate change. In a democracy, citizens must understand why we need to aggressively shift to non-fossil fuels now, in order to forestall very serious consequences for us all in the coming years.
The DC 10/10 collaboration coalition included: 1Sky, 350.org, All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, Bread for the City, Capital BikeShare, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Coalition For Smarter Growth, DC Environmental Network, DC Farm to School Program, DC Food For All, DC Greenworks, DC Project, Earth Day Network, Ecolocity DC, Energy Action Coalition, Friends of the Earth, Georgetown Energy, Global Warming Education Network, goDCgo, Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light, Greenpeace, Hip Hop Caucus, Live Green, Mt.

October 10, 2010 - "Don't ruin the North Pole!" event in Helsinki, Finland (EO, ES)
On Sunday, October 10th at 3pm in Senate Square, Helsinki, Finland environemntal advocates participated in the International Climate Action Day by demonstrating the need for climate change education and awareness.
Participants were encouraged to bring costumes representing sustainable ways to change our environment (wind turbines, solar panels, recycling) or costumes representing negative impacts of climate change (melting snow, haggard reindeer etc). Emphasis was placed upon how climate change is impacting Finland, how Finland relies on the current climate for tourism, recreation, crops, produce and so on.
Helsinki is rated amongst the top cities in the world for smart energy, sustainabile building, and green transportation. Their sustainabiity-forward government and city-wide green thinking will not only help save our livable climate, but also create economic opportunities. We should look to Helsinki and try to be more like them!

August 25, 2010 - Shadowing Senator Brown in Boston (EO, ES)
Sporting large, brown 'oily hands,' and carrying signs reading "Fight Climate Change Now," a dedicated group of climate activists spent nearly two hours 'shadowing' US Senator Scott Brown at several fundraising events in Boston.
Four groups were involved in planning and carrying out the shadow event: 1Sky, 350.org, the Global Warming Education Network, and Paint Brown Green. Activists first gathered outside the Liberty Hotel, a former prison in Boston chanting, "Climate change victims, hear them wail; climate change deniers belong in jail!" Senator Brown was not seen entering or leaving the event.
After 45 minutes the protesters marched past the offices of both US senators Kerry and Brown to a second fundraiser, held at the Kinsale restaurant, where they chanted "Six weeks of drought, then four inches of rain; how do you like your climate change?"
Then, just as the demonstrators were told that "security had been notified," Senator Brown approached the restaurant. Activist Susan Shamel immediately went to the senator's side to voice her request for strong US climate legislation. Shamel and Brown spoke for nearly a minute before the senator waved to the other activists and disappeared inside.
"He was supportive of my request for legislation, but blamed democrats for not bringing appropriate legislation to the senate for a vote," said Shamel.
July 4, 2010 - Energy Independence Day (EO, ES)
On Sunday, July 4th, GWEN joined with other groups in asking President Obama, to do everything in his power to develop US-based renewable energy sources, ending our dependence on fossil fuels.

April 22, 2010 - Earth Day Citizens' Climate Congress in Washington DC (EO, ES)
On Earth Day 2010, GWEN encouraged environmentally concerned groups and individuals from around the world to assemble at 1:00pm in front of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW for a Citizens' Climate Congress. Go here to pledge your support in Washington DC to demand immediate action from US leaders to deal with climate change.
Our number one demand was for President Obama to take immediate steps to ensure that misinformed Americans become informed about climate change and the importance of acting now in order to preserve a livable climate for us and generations to come. Photo here. (More photos are available here, here and here).
Among the speakers at the Citizens' Climate Congress was GWEN's founder and director, Roger Shamel, along with representatives of other constituencies. You can see video coverage of two of our speakers here and here.
Those who attended the Congress brought signs and banners encouraging President Obama to "educate and lead" Americans in our response to the challenges and opportunities that the situation presents. You can find some of the media coverage relating to GWEN's visit to Washington, DC here: article/photo in the Washington Post, article in USA Today (see the fifth paragraph, about a cuddly message), Joe Romm's Climate Progress blog(see Comments Nos. 16, 22 and 26).
This was a collaborative, bottom-up and top-down initiative, with participation encouraged by everyone sharing the concern that our leaders are not responding quickly enough to human-caused climate change. You can find more information on a variety of Earth Day activities here.
Petition to Obama: If you couldn't come to Washington DC on Earth Day, please do the next best thing and sign our petition to President Obama, asking him to spread awareness and act on climate change. We also encourage you to contact the President directly at www.whitehouse.gov using the "Contact Us" button in the upper-right corner of the webpage. Alternatively you may leave a comment for the President by calling 202-456-1111.
Please help to spread the word. We would like this concept of all climate activists asking President Obama to "educate and lead" to go viral and become a concerted action.
April 1, 2010 - March for Clean Air and a Safe Climate (EO, ES)
On April 1, 2010 GWEN joined a united march of climate action groups to support the Clean Air Act so that the EPA can continue to fight climate change.
