Rotary Climate Action Team

What is the RCAT?


The Berkeley Rotary Climate Action Team (RCAT) focuses and enhances our club's efforts to contain the climate crisis and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as quickly as possible. 


During the 2020/21 year, the Berkeley Rotary Club will focus on fighting global warming under the theme Tikkun Olam, “Heal the World.” Throughout the year, we will continue to educate ourselves, our club membership and California Rotarians about this issue by inviting experts to address the club and discussing how we can improve our efforts.


 The goal to reduce GHG emissions aligns with both with Rotary International and the many environmental groups working to fight the climate crisis.


Our efforts may support GHG reduction financially, with our volunteer efforts, with partners and by our own projects. Our collaboration will draw from Rotary International’s addition of  Environmental Sustainability as one of Rotary’s 7 areas of focus that recognizes the threat of global warming.


RCAT meetings are biweekly via Zoom on Thursdays at 5:30 pm.  Please join our Zoom meetings by contacting Ignacio Franco, RCAT chair at:
