Can we sequester carbon in Alameda?
Unanimously approved by City Council (Dec 5th), the City of Alameda has launched a planning process to update its 2008 Local Action Plan for Climate Protection. During the month of January CASA interns, sponsored by Brown University, will be researching strategies for how Alameda can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and become a more sustainable and resilient city. A focus of their research will be carbon sequestration. What are all the opportunities on Alameda to sequester carbon? Which would be most impactful? Most cost-effective? What are the barriers to implementing those opportunities? The interns will report on their findings at this forum.
What are other sustainable cities doing today?
This forum will also feature a panel of experts who will provide observations and lessons learned about what makes a city sustainable.
