Climate resilience begins with people. It is the collective response by the residents and government of Cambridge that is paramount in creating a resilient community today and ensuring a place, space, and sustenance for all in the future.
Green Cambridge, in collaboration with Cambridge Mothers Out Front, the Cambridge Residents Alliance, A Better Cambridge, and Cambridge Bicycle Safety, invites you to participate in our Climate Resilience Council Candidates Forum on Tuesday, September 26th 6:30-9 PM at the Citywide Senior Center. Our groups have a shared vision of a connected, affordable, sustainable city that prioritizes the health and well-being of current and future Cantabrigians.
Moderated by Cantabrigian Derrick Jackson, an award-winning journalist , former Boston Globe columnist, author, and fellow with the Union of Concerned Scientists, this event offers the candidates running for Cambridge City Council an opportunity to to reflect on and to share with voters ways in which they would bring bring greater resilience to our community.
The evening will open with an overview of the issues from Green Cambridge and co-sponsors, community building with the audience followed by questions to candidates. Candidates will be asked share their priorities for Cambridge on how they propose to address equity and affordability while grappling with a rapidly changing environment of increased food and household energy costs: hotter, drier days: shifting rain patterns sea level rise; and unstable resource supply chains that are beyond our control.
