The goal of the Forum is to expand islanders understanding of issues related to climate, sustainability, and energy, how these issues impact their lives, and what actions they can take to address these issues.
How will it work?
A coalition of Bainbridge Island groups will host a monthly presentation, and discussion, that will feature compelling speakers on issues related to climate, sustainability, and energy. We will ask the speaker to present for 20-30 minutes and reserve the rest for questions.
Examples of potential speakers include: energy experts from the Seattle Sightline Institute discussing their work in the Pacific Northwest; officials from cities that have become carbon neutral using local solar, wind and biomass resources; or experts from the Stockholm Environment Institute discussing the pros and cons of carbon offsets.
Who are the hosts?
The local groups hosting include: Climate Action Bainbridge, Island Power, Sustainable Bainbridge, and Citizens Climate Lobby.
