|Rotary Climate Action Now (RCAN)
Dr. Andrew Willinger will introduce Rotary Climate Action Now (RCAN), which is a club project which can lead to a community event designed to reinforce the urgency of the climate crisis, raise the priority of taking action, and provide tools to help you take that action as a group or as individuals. A short film about climate change will be shown.
Dr. Andrew Willinger is the senior consultant and owner of RCG Consulting, an information technology services company, in Newton, Massachusetts (where he resides), specializing in small business management and solutions. Andy joined the Rotary Club of Newton in 2014, and has held leadership positions for the past 9 years. He was Club President for 2022-2023, and currently serves as Treasurer.
Andy was motivated to join Rotary in order to participate in Global Grants for Sanitation and Clean Water that would make a difference in less developed parts of the world, and later authored a Global Grant for Addiction Prevention. His current interest is in Climate Action, now that the Rotary Foundation has included it as one of the main areas of focus.
Dr. Willinger earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Temple University, and his B.A. from Binghamton University.
