localaction -- Announcing a new Coolest City competition Posted: 14 Feb 2012 15:47:48
Join the CoolCalifornia Challenge, California's first state-wide carbon reduction competition!. The CoolCalifornia Challenge is a yearlong competition between California cities to reduce the carbon footprints of residents and to build more vibrant and sustainable communities. The Challenge builds on insights from successful community-based social marketing programs that motivate residents to take climate action and strengthen communities through peer-to-peer capacity building and leadership. The program is designed to unite your city's sustainability efforts under one cause, engage individuals across the community and reward your city with prizes and awards. The program will be run online through http://www.coolcalifornia.org. The 12 month competition is set to begin on April 1st 2012 and the winner will be crowned the Coolest California City. Applying for the program is simple. Interested cities are asked submit a letter of support from a city manager or equivalent stating the city's commitment to participate in the program. We require a letter of commitment by February 29th, and the first 6 cities to apply will receive $1,000 in seed money for the program.
