A Festive Community Event for Faster Local Action on Climate Change
Join Rogue Climate and friends on Sunday, May 4th in downtown Medford for a festive community event to highlight the benefits of a faster transition to cleaner energy and energy efficiency in terms of jobs, our local economy, and our quality of life. It will be an afternoon of music, fun, food, and information.
What: Clean Energy Day
Who: Rogue Climate and you!
When: Sunday, May 4th 2012, 12:00pm-4:00pm
Where: Medford Commons, E. 5th St, Medford, OR 97501
Why: To bring attention to the benefits of a faster transition to clean energy in the Rogue Valley
In 2011, the Rogue Valley Council of Governments and other partners did a study that found we could DOUBLE our clean energy use through greater energy efficiency alone, creating jobs, saving energy, and helping to protect our quality of life from climate change. They also found significant potential for cleaner energy sources in the valley such as solar and wind energy.Over the next year, Rogue Climate will be working to bring together businesses, elected officials, and community partners to start turning those findings into action.
Show your support for faster local action on climate change by coming to Clean Energy Day.
At the event, hundreds of yellow posters about our clean energy future, made by Rogue Valley residents of all ages, will be joined to form a giant sun, a symbol of the benefits we can achieve together.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an art party for your friends, family, coworkers, class, faith group or club! A Rogue Climate volunteer can come and give a short presentation about the local potential for clean energy, the local impacts of climate change if we don’t act now, and what we can do as community members.
