Event Description

In March 2009, Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced the formation of the Boston Climate Action Leadership Committee and Community Advisory Committee. The charge to the committees was to give recommendations to the Mayor on the next set of goals, policies, and programs that Boston should establish for itself as it confronts the risks and opportunities of global climate change. Following a year-long public process, the committees presented Mayor Menino with a consensus report: Sparking Boston’s Climate Revolution. The report contains wide-ranging recommendations for reducing Boston’s contribution to climate change, addressing the changes we cannot avoid, and engaging the entire Boston community in the effort.

In April, the Boston Climate Action Leadership Committee released its recommendations to Mayor Menino. It calls for Boston to reduce carbon emissions by 25 percent by 2020 and begin adapting to a changing climate. Come hear a report from JP residents and commission members and learn about ways to be involved in implementing Boston’s new climate action plan going forward.
