Resilient Neighborhoods: Be Part of the Climate Solution

Post Date:04/27/2017 12:17 PM

Join with neighbors to make Novato a climate leader. The successful, countywide Resilient Neighborhoods program is coming to the Hamilton Community Center with a FREE 5-session course beginning on May 3 from 7-9pm.

Resilient Neighborhoods offers practical actions to live more lightly on the earth. During this 5-session course you will calculate your household carbon footprint and see your CO2 reduction results! Taking simple actions like trimming energy and waste, conserving water, and making smarter transportation choices can save you money too.  One graduate said, “By taking actions and utilizing the rebates I learned about in the program, I reduced my gasoline and energy bills by 67%.” You’ll also prepare your family for emergencies and help build a stronger and safer community.

It’s effective because people do it as a team with neighbors in a fun and supportive atmosphere. The results so far — 300+ families have reduced over 3.6 million annual lbs. of CO2 pollution! That is enough to keep nearly an acre of Arctic Sea ice from melting! 

Sign up today to reserve your space at one of the 2 sessions being offered:

Session 1: 5/3, 5/17, 5/31, 6/14, and 6/28
Session 2:
 7/12, 7/26, 8/9, 8/23 and 9/6

Register online novato.org/newaccount, enter class code: rn.1 for session 1 and rn.2 for session 2.
