Cool Davis spreads the word on energy events

By From page A10 | March 17, 2013

Cool Davis will promote its upcoming energy-efficiency events at a booth at the first Picnic in the Park of the season, on Wednesday. The booth, which will be open from 5 to 7:30 p.m., will be near the caterpillar sculpture in the Central Park Gardens, along B Street.

Community Action Team members will be on hand to talk about upcoming events and resources that can help bring Davis closer to the goal of engaging 75 percent of our community to reduce carbon emissions 15 percent below 1990 levels by 2015. The ultimate goal is to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.

A representative of the city’s Natural Resources Commission will be present to answer questions about the city’s goal to divert 75 percent of waste from landfills by 2020 with the ultimate goal of moving toward zero waste. The commission will host a workshop at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Club Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St.

Other upcoming events:

* World Water Day will be celebrated globally on Friday. Visit the Cool Davis table and share your most creative water conservation stories.

* Earth Hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, when everyone is asked to turn off their lights. This global event is organized by Uniting People to Protect People.
