Somerville Climate Forward working groups

The City of Somerville has completed a Greenhouse Gas Inventory, a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and a Carbon Neutrality Pathways Assessment. That’s impressive, if you ask me. They’ve essentially taken stock of the city’s carbon footprint, modeled the impact of climate change on the city and assessed how the long-term plan of carbon neutrality can be achieved. All of that is available on the city’s Sustainaville website.

That leaves the hard part, which is actually starting the change process. To that end, the city is organizing its Somerville Climate Forward action plan around eight working groups. Today, I submitted my name to participate in either the Energy, Utilities & Infrastructure or Community & Economic Development working groups. I think they’ll dole out assignments based on how much interest they get. We should get our assignments next week.
