Breakfast will be served; donations welcome!
Join EcoAction Partners for June’s EcoAction Roundtable, held at the Wilkinson Public Library on June 28th. The event will take place in the Program Room from 8:30 AM until 10 AM. Come learn about our regional Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory from the years 2010 to 2012, and how this information relates to your personal carbon footprint and energy use in the community.
Kim Wheels, our Energy Coordinator, has recently updated our area’s baseline GHG data, so we now have three years of energy, transportation, waste, and food information to analyze. She recently presented this data to representatives from San Miguel County governments at the Intergovernmental Meeting on May 20th, and is continually working with them to determine how to reach our sustainability goals in regards to energy use. The governments’ carbon footprint is only a small percentage of the overall picture though – this is where Telluride community members come in!
On June 28th, Wheels will explain the importance of every member of our community in reaching our sustainability goals and reducing GHG emissions. Whether through reducing energy consumption, offsetting or modifying travel choices, or through our eating habits, we all can make a difference. Come learn about the programs EcoAction Partners offers to work with your particular footprint, interests, and lifestyle as Wheels demonstrates that every community member must be involved in reducing our regional (and global) GHG emissions.
Please join us on June 28th, 8:30 am at the five-star Wilkinson Public Library for June’s EcoAction Roundtable! Learn about our community workshops and initiatives, including options for solar energy and ways to get involved in our environmental programs. Hope to see you there!
