Activism in Massachusetts Towns and Cities: What’s Happening? Climate Week 2017 event

Moderator: Carol Oldham, Exec. Dir. Mass Climate Action. Presenters: Werner Lohe, Co-Chair Brookline Selectman's Climate Action Committee; Dr. Nathan Phillips, Professor, Earth and Environment, Boston University; Audrey Schulman, Founder of HEET; Maureen Barillaro and/or Hannah Payne, Office of Sustainability and Environment, City of Somerville

Local climate initiatives are the roots of broader political action. Gas pipeline leaks are mobilizing active citizens at the town level across the Commonwealth. Hear about about what is being done to identify and mitigate the worst gas leaks. Learn about townwide net zero goals being applied to schools and individual buildings. Find out how Somerville incorporated climate change into urban planning. Discover how these efforts came to be and what level of success has been achieved. Discuss in group sessions how you can contribute to that effort.
