MAPC’s Clean Energy Forum: Climate Equity x MetroCommon 2050 @ District Hall Boston
Dec 11 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

To preserve our communities and create opportunity for future generations, we must eliminate carbon emissions and green our cities and towns. We also must advance equity, resilience, public health, and economic growth.

How do we align those critical needs for mutual benefit? That’s the question the MAPC Clean Energy Forum will dig into on December 11. Join us!

Light breakfast and beverages will be served. Further event details to come!
