localaction -- Webinar on CoolCalifornia Challenge this Thursday Posted: 31 Oct 2011 10:54:39
Webinar on CoolCalifornia Challenge, a pilot greenhouse gas reduction competition for California communities. Thursday, November 3rd, 1:30-3PM PST CoolCalifornia.org will hold an informational webinar on Thursday, November 3rd from 1:30-3:00PM on the CoolCalifornia Challenge, a pilot carbon footprint reduction competition between up to three California communities. The competition will acknowledge individuals who have already taken steps to reduce their carbon footprints and motivate others to reduce their impact through a targeted community-based social marketing campaign, creating a buzz around sustainability and giving momentum to existing environmental programs in participating communities. CoolCalifornia.org is currently seeking applications from consortia of local governments and community-based organizations interested in participating in the competition, which is scheduled to run for one year starting in early 2012. This webinar will describe the goals, timeline, expectations, draft rules, guiding theories and resources available for the program. The Community Challenge is a research project sponsored by the California Air Resources Board, and conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, in collaboration with community-based organizations and local governments. The results of this pilot program will help inform the development of similar programs throughout the state and beyond by providing local governments and community-based organizations with an effective and replicable program model.
