Sustainability Collaborative with Boston Climate Action Network
August 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
RENEWABLES FOR ALL IN BOSTONPresented by Alice Tilton, Boston Climate Action Network
Cities across the country are cutting their carbon emissions and making renewable power available to all electric ratepayers through Community Choice Energy (CCE). We’ll look at CCE’s equity and emissions impacts in Boston and discuss the intersection of political action and consumer action in combating climate change.
The Boston Climate Action Network is a climate justice organization that works to broaden the constituency for a green economy and frame climate concerns to resonate with Boston residents’ daily lives. Through popular education, creative communications, and a unified messaging strategy, BostonCAN works to unify diverse constituencies behind a clean energy vision relevant to broad sectors of society.

The Sustainability Collaborative was spurred as an outgrowth of the Sustainability unConference and aims to provide an ongoing platform for collaboration, connections, and solutions generation. Rotating sustainability advocates are given the chance to facilitate group discussion around central sustainability themes ranging from hunger alleviation to impact investing. The goal is to raise awareness within the innovation community while strengthening the social impact ecosystem.
Hosted monthly as part of The Venture Café Foundation’s Café Night at Kendall gathering at CIC Cambridge.
