How will you participate in our civilization’s need to address climate change? Folks will be discussing our legislative goals for a Massachusetts Green New Deal. Help win the
passage of bills on 100% renewable energy by 2050, equitable carbon pricing and
environmental justice in the next legislative session. Join in on Thursday, February 7, at Peace Lutheran Church 107 Concord Road, Wayland, MA at 7:00pm. Help us chart a path forward to make a difference in Metrowest.

First time visitors are especially welcome; come learn, share, discuss, plan and
act. 350Mass is a statewide, grassroots, climate action group dedicated to promoting
citizen awareness and political action on climate change. The Metrowest node public
meetings usually happen the first Thursday of the month, with locations changing to
accommodate learners, supporters, and activists from towns around the region. All are
invited to participate in the breakout groups for the local initiatives as well as in the
informal planning group that meets on dates prior to the monthly meeting. There will
also be a chance for participants to share news and announcements from their
organizations and municipalities. Arrive early to mingle.  Light refreshments will be
available.

Keep hearing about Net Zero at building committee meetings and from friends building new homes?

The Mass Climate Action Network (MCAN) is hosting a Net Zero roundtable  on September 25 from 7-9pm at Maynard High School. This event will allow people to learn about net-zero building and ask questions about why net-zero building is important and how to implement net-zero policy in their town or municipality.

Also, please RSVP below as there is a capacity limit for the space (and they are providing dessert and light refreshments). Have questions?
