The world is searching for a high impact climate solution in the short term while we still have the time to act. Cities represent 70% of the planet’s carbon emissions and citizens’ daily lifestyle choices represent 70% of these emissions. Empowering cities and their citizens to reduce their carbon footprint provides the world with an unparalleled opportunity to address climate change.
Because of its climate change leadership and the suffering it has experienced, not surprisingly California has seized this opportunity. Enter The Cool Block. Three California cities – Los Angeles, San Francisco and Palo Alto – successfully piloted this program on 50 blocks achieving an average household carbon reduction of 32% and disaster resilient blocks.
David Gershon, social change visionary and creator of The Cool Block, will share how this program is being taken to scale statewide through the Cool California Initiative; how it’s designed to create carbon neutral cities; and how Santa Barbara can be part this climate movement and help change the world again!
