In 2019, the Fairfax Town Council became the first Town in Marin County to declare a Climate Emergency, and to set a target of ZERO Greenhouse gas emissions from the residents, businesses, and visitors to the town, as well as from the Town operations themselves.
This is an audacious goal.
We can be encouraged by the fact that, a decade ago, we set a goal to reduce our emissions 20% by 2020, and we beat that goal by several years. This is a town of people who get things done.
Our challenge is huge, and we would like to invite interested people to join us; we need your help
We are looking for students who want to help us and to learn and to bring lessons back to your schools. We are looking for business owners who can help us think about ce-carbonizing while supporting economic vitality. We are looking for people who can help us design strategies for supporting the needs of diverse communities, including economic and demographic diversity. We need creative thinkers.
If you, or someone you know might be interested, please be in touch. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, as always encourage your friends to go Deep Green, and encourage your friends to sign up for this blog. Our community can do anything, when we work together.
Thank you all, and stay well.
