Imagine. What would a climate-solved Arlington look like?
Join us Saturday, February 12 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. for hot chocolate (bring your own mug), s’mores, and get inspired to imagine and act to create a climate-solved future.
This event is presented by Arlington Public Library in partnership with Parks and Recreation, Department of Environmental Services, and EcoAction Arlington.
The urgency of climate change is real and can be overwhelming and anxiety-inducing. But spending time and energy imagining a future in which a problem is already solved can spur action in the present. So, inspired by author Bina Venkataraman’s idea of the Optimist’s Telescope, let’s take a look through the telescope 50 years into Arlington’s future and imagine that we see an Arlington that is successfully combating climate change. What does Arlington look like? How can we each take steps now that help us get there?
Join us on February 12: Imagine. What would a climate-solved Arlington look like in 50 years? First, grab a hot beverage (bring your reusable mug!), make some s’mores by the campfire, and get inspired by listening to excerpts from literature that imagine the possibilities of a climate-solved future. Then, follow the trail to the future, learn from local community organizations about their climate action programs, and contribute your own solutions to climate problems facing Arlington. All ages welcome. Kids activities will be provided.
Registration required for the event to manage space.
Location: Lubber Run fire ring & Lubber Run Community Center, Oak and Hickory Room.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
