In Boulder, 28 participants tackled Climate Action and Resilience with Communities for Change (C4C) Boulder, with the aim of mobilizing the Boulder community to meet the city’s climate goals and serve as a model for other cities around the world.
The burning of coal, oil and gas for energy is warming Earth’s atmosphere and changing our climate. As a result, we’ve seen more frequent and intense temperature extremes and destructive weather events. For the Boulder community, climate action is about resilience and transformation: they need to adapt to the climate changes that are already in motion, as well as reduce the emissions-heavy activities that drive future climate change. It is a great challenge but also a great opportunity to make Boulder better — to create a healthier, safer and more prosperous community.
