On February 26th, the LWVN held a very important Climate Change Forum at the Scandanavian Living Center where we had approximately 90 people in attendance. We were pleased to have had the Leagues of Framingham, Needham, Wayland, Wellesley, and Weston as co-sponsors. We also want to thank Launa Zimmaro, legislative specialist for climate change and energy from the LWVMA who helped to organize this event and recruit the exceptional panelists that included:
- Craig Altemose, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Better Future Project
- Jordan Stutt, Carbon Programs Direct of the Acadia Center
- Audrey Schulman Co-Founder & Executive Director of HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team)
- Zeyneb Magavi, HEET Director
We were also joined by State Senator Cynthia Creem who closed the meeting with important remarks regarding the The FUTURE Act legislation for which she is the lead sponsor.
Additional information and resources from the forum.
Please join us in thanking Frieda Dweck for organizing this very successful event, along with her team of Jen Abbott, Lisa Mirabile, and Karen Manning who worked diligently to promote the event to the League and the wider community.
