In 2017, Sustainable Princeton was awarded a $100,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to develop a Climate Action Plan for Princeton.
Our goal, in part, is to engage the Princeton community in open 'conversations' about their concerns and ideas surrounding issues relating to Princeton's ever-changing climate and how it directly effects them. These conversations are lead by facilitators and are meant to encourage participants to share their concerns, listen to their neighbors' concerns and brainstorm for solutions.
The first session, held on April 11, 2018, was well-attended and brought to light many issues our community is experiencing, especially with extreme weather fluctuations. Many attendees expressed concern for others, especially the elderly.
If you weren't able to attend the previous 'Let’s Talk Climate' event on April 11, then please join us for one of the next two coming up. It is critical to our work, that we hear from the Princeton community.
Tuesday, May 22, 7-8:15pm: John Witherspoon Middle School, 27 Walnut Lane, Princeton. Light refreshments will served at this zero waste event. Free and open to all. We ask that you pre-register to help us plan.
Saturday, June 16, 9-10:30am: Suzanne Patterson Building, 45 Stockton Street, Princeton. Light refreshments will served at this zero waste event. Free and open to all. We ask that you pre-register to help us plan.
Whenever possible, please consider arriving in a sustainable way such as walk, bike, bike share, carpool or park in the Spring Street Garage with the EV changing station.
Princeton's Climate Action Plan is expected to be completed by December 2019.
