Low-Carbon Communities Event

6:00 – 7:30 PM, SPUR, 654 Mission Street, SAN FRANCISCO. Beverages and light snacks available. A new, neighborhood-scale greenhouse gas inventory of the Bay Area suggests that responding effectively to climate change requires a more nuanced, place-based approach. The authors of the study – Chris Jones of UC Berkeley’s Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, and David Burch of BAAQMD – will present their findings and lead a discussion about necessary planning and behavioral changes. Co-presented by the APA California Northern Sustainability Committee and the Planners Working Group on Energy and the Built Environment. Free for APA and SPUR members, $10 for non-members.
