Sustainable Middlesex presents a two-part event: “Carbon Countdown 2023: Onward! Reaching our 2030 Climate Targets.” Sustainable Middlesex is a network of grassroots climate action groups focused on public awareness of and advocacy for policies that support climate sustainability, mitigation, and adaptation.
On Friday, May 16, climate chief Melissa Hoffer will speak about an equitable and sustainable future: “A Vision for Massachusetts.” Her talk will be followed by a Q&A session and brief introductions to local community-driven initiatives that will be covered in detail at Saturday’s event.
On Saturday, May 20, Sen. Mike Barrett will talk about connecting citizen activists to the legislative process, as well as connecting the executive branch work to the work of the legislature. His talk will be followed by workshops based on the community-driven initiatives.
