Interested in being involved in local climate change activism?

Please join us in the Drawdown Eugene campaign as we advocate for successful planning, completion and adoption of the City of Eugene’s Climate Action Plan 2 (CAP 2). (NOTE: The term “Drawdown” comes from the inspired work of Paul Hawken and colleagues.)

This plan will involve the city staff, the public, businesses and institutions of our city to craft solutions for decreasing our collective emissions of greenhouse gases and substantially reduce our use of fossil fuels in Eugene.

The CAP 2 process is in the early stages of a 2-year time frame, so now is a great time to join us to influence, create, educate and testify.

In this campaign:

  1. We contact citizens who might want to join us in common efforts;
  2. We write letters to the editor to help educate Eugene’s public about the merits and possibilities of greenhouse gas emission reduction;
  3. We research a variety of issues that will help us communicate effectively;
  4. We attend City Council Meetings to testify or be counted as supporters of our campaign, and more.

You don’t need to have any prior knowledge or experience with politics. Bring whatever skills you have and learn with us!

Our monthly meetings take place on the second Monday of the month at First United Methodist Church (1376 Olive St) from 4:00-5:00 pm. We use this time to check in, note what we’ve completed, discuss new priorities, and to learn from, support and inspire each other.
