Futurewise to co-host first brownbag on Seattle Climate Action Plan, December 14
Futurewise Brownbag Series on the Seattle Climate Action Plan
The City of Seattle is currently in the process of updating its Climate Action Plan in order to meet its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. That means Seattle has an incredible opportunity to set a plan and actions toward improving economic opportunity, affordability and self-sufficiency, and public health by building high-performing, transit oriented communities. Futurewise is partnering with the Seattle Office of Sustainability and the Environment and Seattle Councilmember Mike O’Brien to host four panel brownbag discussions from December 2011 to mid-summer 2012 to dream what’s possible.
December 14, 12:00-1:30, Seattle City Hall Boards & Commissions Room (L280)
Building businesses that reduce our dependence on oil, coal, and other sources of energy pays a double dividend: we create new regional micro-economic engines while save working families at the pump and on their home utility bills. A panel of local experts will discuss the opportunities of growth without pollution economic model.
Co-Moderators: Councilmembers Tim Burgess and Sally Clark.
Panelists: Kristen Sheeran of EcoTrust, Patrick Neville of King County Labor Council and BlueGreen Alliance, Brian Geller of the Seattle 2030 District, and Steve Gelb of SustainableWorks.
