Net Zero Lexington

Is Lexington's Future Renewable?

Wednesday, December 6, 7 PM, Cary Memorial Building, Estabrook Hall
1605 Mass Ave., Lexington

Green World in a handFor the past year, Lexington’s Net Zero Task Force has been envisioning a clean, renewable energy future and how Lexington might accomplish that goal. We’d like to share our progress with you and get your feedback at a public information session.

We will review high level recommended strategies followed by a panel discussion addressing specific topics such as moving to 100% renewable electricity with Community Choice, architectural design, energy efficiency, and retrofits, considering residential, commercial, and municipal perspectives, plus the environmental and health reasons for making this transition. View a speaker list.



Bedford Energy Task Force

Film and Panel Discussion:
Project Drawdown - A Comprehensive Plan to Reverse Global Warming

Monday, December 11, 7 - 8:30 PM
Bedford Public Library 7 Mudge Way, Bedford

Project DrawdownThere is no silver bullet for climate change because slowing planetary warming will require a variety of strategies. Drawdown, a new book edited by the green entrepreneur, Paul Hawken, analyzes 100 solutions, ranks them by the amount of greenhouse gases they could cut, and reaches some surprising conclusions. The plan was devised by a diverse group of international researchers who examined and modeled substantive, existing solutions to address climate change.

Join us for a brief film, followed by a panel discussion with: Keith Bergman, Littleton’s Town Administrator and President of MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council); Dan Bostwick, Member, Bedford Net Zero Study Group: and Kate Crosby, Energy Manager, Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools.



Life in the Balance Film Series

"Chasing Coral"

Tuesday December 12, 6:30 PM,
Room 401, Concord Carlisle Regional High School

Chasing Coral“It’s not too late for coral reefs… indeed, for many other ecosystems that are facing challenges from climate change. It’s still possible to reduce the rate at which the climate is changing, and that’s within our power today.” – Dr. Ove Hoegh-Guldberg

Chasing Coral was directed by Jeff Orlowski and produced by Larissa Rhodes. The film took more than three years to shoot, and is the result of 500+ hours underwater, submissions of footage from volunteers from 30 countries, including support from more than 500 people from various locations around the world.
