Alameda Climate Protection Forum
April 24th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Albert H. DeWitt Officers’ Club, 641 West Redline Ave.
Join us on April 24th to see how much progress Alameda has made in efforts to reduce carbon emissions and find ways you can get involved either at home or in the community!
The City of Alameda and Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) are hosting a forum to celebrate Alameda’s progress towards meeting the goals of Alameda’s Local Action Plan for Climate Protection. It has been 5 years since the city adopted its local action plan, and there is exciting progress to report. The forum will highlight:
- Results of the recent Green House Gas Emissions Inventory Baseline Update
- Inspiring presentation by Cece Reinhardt and Brenda Daugherty, two Alamedans making a big commitment to live with a small carbon footprint. Cece and Brenda will talk about their journey along the path to small footprint living including their travels in their Green RV and their recent purchase of a 483 square foot house in Alameda. EXTRA BONUS – Cece and Brenda will have their RV on hand for tours after the forum!
- Local heroes who step up to help reduce the city’s carbon emissions
- Opportunities for residents and businesses to discover ways to reduce their own carbon footprints and to get involved in community efforts
Participants include: Alameda Backyard Growers, Alameda Green Schools Challenge, BikeWalk Alameda, Alameda Municipal Power, Alameda County Green Business Program, CASA, City of Alameda, and Miss Alameda
Background: In 2008 the City of Alameda adopted a Local Plan for Climate Protection, the goal of which is “to reduce Alameda’s carbon emissions to 25% below 2005 levels by the year 2020”.
In September 2008 CASA was formed to help achieve that goal and to fulfill one of the top 7 goals of the Local Plan for Climate Protection which is to “Develop a multi-faceted community outreach program to increase public awareness and participation in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions”.
