EDF Activist Zoom Meeting
August 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
EDF Action will host activist training: What does a “100% clean energy economy” look like? This week, we’ll explore how economics and climate change intersect. Join us Thursday, August 6 at 6pm as we cover topics like: How does investing in climate solutions help both the climate and our economy? Our speaker is Brittany Sellers , Ph.D and theSustainability Project Manager with The City of Orlando. The majority of the air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and a significant amount of water used across the City of Orlando comes from powering our buildings. In order to address this problem, The City of Orlando is shifting away the burning of fossil fuels towards clean and renewable energy. They are also seeking out ways to make our buildings more energy efficient – meaning that less energy and money is wasted through the process of powering the building – and encouraging green building practices. By pursuing these goals businesses and residents save money, boost the local economy, create new jobs, and support a cleaner, healthier environment.
