WHAT CAN WALPOLE DO ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE?

June 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am EDT

A hands-on workshop to understand what you can do and how much impact you can have on climate change.  A simulation driven workshop to understand actions and policy options.

At the helm of Climate Interactive’s ‘En-ROADS’ global climate simulator, DON ROLPH will lead an exploration of the impact that dozens of policies—such as electrifying transport, pricing carbon, and improving agricultural practices—would have on hundreds of factors like energy prices, temperature, air quality, and sea level rise.

This workshop will be an interactive group learning experience that promotes greater understanding of the causes of climate change and the solutions essential to mitigating it. The simulator application allows the audience to explore and rapidly assess the impacts of different solutions to climate change—like energy supply subsidies, energy efficiency, or land use changes, among many others.

Walpole Green is a group of citizens dedicated to a healthy environment, including moving toward 100% renewable energy. They work to protect our natural resources and to address the climate crisis in Walpole and in our state and country. Over the years they have been increasing the town’s awareness of the need to move towards sustainability and carbon reduction in its municipal structures and functions.
