Community Invited to Redwood City’s “Cool Campaign” Kick-Off Event!
Redwood City, CA - January 19, 2008 – Redwood City believes that together, as a community, we can reduce energy use and waste, lower our community’s carbon emissions, and take positive action to help protect our future from climate change. Recognizing that this is a critical issue for both today and for the generations to come, Redwood City announces its new Cool Campaign, a community building project that will bring people together around climate protection.
The community is invited to join in the inauguration of this new program:
- Redwood City Cool Campaign Kick Off Event
Thursday, February 7th, 2008
6:30 – 8:30 pm
City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road
After dinner and an overview of the program, staff will unveil the Cool Campaign interactive website created by the City. This will be a great tool providing information, assistance, and easy ways for community members to take personal, positive action to reduce energy use and carbon emissions in their home, neighborhood, and workplace – and make a real difference!
RSVPs are requested to firstname.lastname@example.org (or 650-780-5917) with the number of people attending. Information on climate protection and Redwood City’s Cool Campaign is available at www.redwoodcity.org/coolcity.
This inaugural event (in collaboration with non-profit environmental action group Acterra – www.acterra.org) will be fun, informative, and inspiring – a catalyst for neighbors to join in and do their part for climate protection. Middle school or high school age kids are welcome and encouraged to participate. And, everyone who gets to this event via mass transit, carpool, or other alternative to the single-occupant car will be entered into a special drawing!
Redwood City’s Cool Campaign will offer a new level of motivation and encouragement for our community members to work toward climate protection.
