Event Host: Cool Davis Initiative: A Campaign to inspire and empower our community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while having fun. We are a coalition of non-profits, business people, local activists, students, educators, faith-based representatives, city employees and community members who consider action on climate change essential to the future of the Davis community. We believe that many citizens of Davis have a firm resolve to move toward sustainability, and that now is the time to foster dialogue, education, public awareness and civic engagement that will lead to direct action. http://cityofdavis.org/pgs/sustainability/cooldavis/
