April 21, 2018: Earth Day Panel on a Fossil Free Wilmette & Skokie

When: Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Where: Lake Street Church, 607 Lake Street, Evanston
What: This year, Chicago Area Peace Action’s (CAPA) Climate Group decided to take to heart 350.org’s call for a “fossil free future” with a focus on municipal-level action. Building on the demonstrated success in Evanston when it comes to planning and benchmarks to reduce carbon emissions by 28% by 2025 (over 2005 levels), CAPA is embarking on community education and coalition building. The panel will include: Katherine Moore Powell, Climate Scientist, Field Museum; Lindy Wordlaw, Senoir Manager, Public Sector Programs, Elevate Energy; and Tomas deMedici, Trajectory, a Community Solar company. CAPA will encourage a good Q and A discussion between panelists and audience. These are the experts that can help us become more comfortable “in the weeds” of this fairly complex transition. CAPA believes that with a lot of citizen involvement in both Skokie and Wilmette, they can put this conversation on the table and discover what it will take to get a commitment to move in a planned way in both villages toward 100% renewable energy.
