The City of Boston is looking for Climate Ready Boston Leaders
to raise awareness about climate change – and the City’s initiatives to fight it – at the neighborhood level. Last summer, approximately 70 participants were trained in this new outreach program. They then held events and gave talks in their neighborhoods.
Climate Ready Boston (CRB) Leaders discuss the immediate effects of climate change on Boston residents, such as coastal flooding, heat waves, and record snowfalls. Then they explain the City’s efforts to mitigate these effects. For instance, the City is restoring salt marshes, which will protect coastal areas from flooding. The City is also encouraging the planting of trees in heat islands, to provide shade for local residents. Last but not least, the City is trying to cut carbon emissions through energy efficiency, and by increasing the use of renewables.
Help your fellow Bostonians join in the fight against climate change. Please consider registering for one of the these training sessions:
