Join Us at Green Drinks!
Cara Fleischer will be this month's Green Drinks speaker on the topic, “Global Climate Action: Lessons
from the UN COP25 Climate Conference in Madrid.”
Cara attended the UN COP25
Climate Conference as a Christian Observer representative of the Florida United
Methodist Church, and she will share her experiences there. She’ll give us her insight about how the
rest of the world responded to the Trump administration pulling out of the
Paris Climate Agreement, about the 35,000 climate leaders who come together for
negotiations, and about the youth-led and indigenous people's movements that took
center stage as Greta Thunberg and others spoke about the need for urgency.
Back at home, Cara is
a Leon Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor and advocates for
issues important to the residents of Leon County including clean water, air and
better access to natural sites. She is active
in many local and environmental endeavors, including writing articles in the Tallahassee
Democrat, starting the Creation Care Ministry at Saint Paul’s United Methodist
Church in Midtown, being a member of the Florida United Methodist Church
Creation Care Task Force, and starting the Tallahassee Green Faith Alliance.
Cara is on the board of
ReThink Energy Florida and is the Communications Chair for the Tally100
Coalition that is assisting Tallahassee in moving to 100% Renewable Energy by
2050. She was selected as a 2018
