Beyond the Strike Climate Forum in Carbondale
October 23 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Regional Climate Forum
More than 4 million people in 163 countries on all seven continents participated in youth-led climate strikes in September. How can we build on that momentum?
Reduce Emissions and Move to a Clean Energy Economy
Please join us for this regional climate forum focused on next steps our valley and region can take to reduce our emissions and move to a clean energy economy. Let’s turn our passion and vision into practical solutions and positive actions!
Headlining Beyond the Strike will be a panel discussion of area elected officials and energy experts, including:
* Holy Cross Energy CEO Bryan Hannegan
* Kevin Brehm of Rocky Mountain Institute’s Shine Initiative
* Former State Senator Gail Schwartz
* Aspen Mayor Torre
* Basalt Town Council Member Bill Infante
* Carbondale Trustee Ben Bohmfalk
* Glenwood Springs Council Member Paula Stepp
The forum will also feature opening statements from area students, an overview of clean energy progress in the region, and an opportunity for the public to give input on upcoming plans and actions. This input will be well timed to influence 2020 budget decisions!
Plus, mingle and get info from other local groups such as the Carbondale Environmental Board, 350.org, Wilderness Workshop, RFTA, Conservation Colorado, Holy Cross Energy, Sunsense, Neighbors in Action, the Farm Collaborative, US Green Building Council, Way of Compassion Bicycle Project, Alpine Bank, Greenline Architects and the Basalt Green Team.
