For Immediate ReleaseAugust 19, 2020
Through August, residents can provide feedback on climate change efforts
San Rafael, CA – It took two years of planning and more than 150 volunteers to collaborate with the County of Marin on identifying local climate change solutions. Those behind the Drawdown: Marin Strategic Plan have extended its feedback period through August, so there are a few days left to examine the proposed solutions and strategic initiatives on www.drawdownmarin.org.
Six groups have designed and presented 29 solutions to the Executive Steering Committee and it endorsed seven of those solutions for immediate implementation. The Strategic Plan summarizes all the solutions, necessary equity work and initiatives, community empowerment and engagement priorities, and governance and funding needs for 2021-2030.
After comments are received, a revised plan will be presented to the Board of Supervisors later this year in conjunction with the County’s 2020 Climate Action Plan Update.
The Executive Steering Committee endorsed the following solutions for immediate implementation:
Drawdown: Marin support will go toward identifying implementation funding, identifying opportunities to make solutions more equitable and accessible, and technical implementation guidance.
Everyone can learn more and participate by visiting www.drawdownmarin.org and make a pledge to act on climate change.
