Make A Statement

Make A StatementMillions of people around the globe, in more than 122 countries, went on strike for the climate on May 24. The grassroots group Drawdown East End, a member of Adult Allies Coalition of the youth-led movement Earth Uprising, invited members of the community to join the rally on the lawn of Southampton Town Hall.

Southampton Town has been a great partner in this work in taking many significant positive steps. The town participates in New York State’s Climate Smart Communities project. In 2013, the town passed an important sustainability plan to guide town planning. Most critically, the town has pledged that its electric infrastructure will be 100 percent carbon free by 2025.

On Friday, we will call on the Town of Southampton to appoint a committee to prioritize CSC requirements and Southampton 400-plus goals using Drawdown’s ranking plan.

Whether you are a kid or a grandparent, or anyone in between, your presence will be powerful. And if you are a businessperson with employees, consider giving them extra time off to participate in the cause of a lifetime.

Drawdown East End’s mission is to jump-start local Drawdown carbon solutions for cascading social, ecological, economic, health and security benefits through education, events and partnerships.

Game on!
