Education

Learn and Share.

We are communicating ways to reduce our impact on the climate while raising awareness of how climate change will affect our lives and how we can reduce negative impacts.  We are doing this by:

  • Sponsoring outreach events, such as film screenings, panel discussions and informal meetups
  • Inspiring citizens to create climate solutions in their own lives and communities
  • Publicly recognizing businesses, youth and individuals that provide leadership in support of sustainability
  • Involving the public in decision-making
