On May 13, 350 Sacramento will host a Community Forum: Leading the Way to Carbon Zero, to explore paths to achieving carbon zero in the Sacramento region. The keynote will be Alex Steffen, author of Carbon Zero: Imagining Cities that Can Save the Planet.

This is the biggest challenge of our lifetime!! We need to speed up the transition from fossil fuels to a sustainable future. With a federal government actively hostile to the climate, the real action is now at the local level. Cities are where innovation and creativity can make a huge difference, transforming urban landscapes into low-carbon highly desirable communities. Sacramento, the capital of California, can be a leader in this exciting and ambitious effort. Come to this Community Forum and learn how we can get the carbon out and create a thriving Sacramento region. Register today!!
