A4E North America Friday meetings are informal, with the agenda driven by members who come to the meetings. In the spring, members decided to devote half of each meeting to making phone calls and writing letters in support of campaigns run by organizations including the Union of Concerned Scientists, Climate Changemakers, and the Climate Reality Project. Another focus in the spring was planning for an event that took place on May 3 on the campus of San Francisco State University, Actionable Hope: An Interdisciplinary Discussion for a Thriving World, which included speakers from NASA, the SETI Institute, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Video highlights can be viewed here.
