In Washtenaw County only 44% of people occasionally or more frequently talk about global warming. That means that 56% of people in Washtenaw County are NEVER talking about climate change. If people are not talking about climate change – then they will not take action to address climate change.
The "Climate Hero Stories" initiative is based on a well-established psychological principle:
“People look to others who are similar to them for cues about appropriate behavior.”
By sharing "climate hero stories" -- so people can see that others just like themselves are taking action to address climate change -- we can get more people in Washtenaw County talking about -- and doing something about -- climate change.
Climate Hero of the Month photos and stories will be posted to the Climate Hero Stories website and Facebook page.
Organizations can announce among their members their Climate Hero of the Month – and include this in their social media.
Ads will appear every other month in the Ann Arbor Observer to recognize the "Climate Heroes of the Month" and what they have done.
The ads in the Observer will be the single greatest point of ongoing visibility for climate change in Washtenaw County.
