Sustainable Westchester Partners with World Leaders Host Zero Emissions Summit
As the Vice Chair of Sustainable Westchester, a non-profit consortium of 41 Westchester County local governments, I along with fellow board members are committed to assisting municipal sustainability efforts. Sustainable Westchester co-hosted a Zero Emissions Summit on Citizen’s Role for Mitigating Climate Change on September 21, 2017 at the Scandinavia House in Manhattan. The summit coincided with the UN General Assembly and provided a platform to drive global climate action forward. The President of Finland and Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change presented. It was inspiring to learn about efforts in other countries and communities to reduce greenhouse gases. We are hopeful that we can replicate some of these efforts in the Town of Mamaroneck.
