Come engage with local Climate Action leaders in a pre-Halloween primer on local climate action planning where we will answer questions like "what is sustainability?", "what metrics matter?" and "what does it mean for Capitola to be part of the Cool Climate Network?" Try your hand at easy and fun tools to understand your carbon footprint and the everyday actions you can take to reduce your impact. Learn about opportunities to engage in Capitola's climate action planning as part of the ongoing City General Plan update process. Get involved! Meeting climate action goals for our community requires not only a shared mindset but sustained, collective action. Therefore this interactive, hands-on event will conclude with participants committing to challenge themselves to specific actions to reduce their carbon footprint. Refreshments will be served.
