Please join us on EARTH DAY 2008 for an interfaith public forum with Mayor Will Wynn on the Austin Climate Protection Plan.
There will be a reception following the presentation in the Community Room. All are welcome!
Mayor Wynn's Austin Climate Protection Plan, approved by the City Council in February, will make Austin first in the nation in the reduction of greenhouse gases. As part of this five-part municipal plan, all City of Austin facilities and transportation fleets will be carbon-neutral by 2020, energy efficiency of new construction will increase 75% by 2015, and individuals and businesses will receive incentives to achieve carbon neutrality.
If all this sounds ambitious, it is! Austin will be in the forefront of American cities in the fight against global warming. Come and find out how faith communities can support the Austin Climate Protection Plan.
Mayor Will Wynn received training from Al Gore at The Climate Project in Nashville in January. Mayor Wynn was featured in Time Magazine's watershed issue on global warming as well as Newsweek's "The Greening of America" issue. He has spoken on this pressing issues throughout the United States and has been invited to speak at the United Nations session on renewable energy in Bonn, Germany.
