ECOS has been hosting the Environmentalist of the Year Awards since 1973. This year, we are hosting the 2022 Awards as an in-person event.

The Environmentalist of the Year Awards enable us to honor local leaders for their work in sustainability. ECOS has honored those who have achieved more affordable and equitable transit-oriented communities, less sprawl, more habitat protection, and cleaner air and water. Today, with climate change, these same objectives, as well as electrification and clean energy sources, are what we must achieve to make the transition to carbon neutrality. The 2022 awardees will be selected with our climate challenge in mind.

Roughly quoting Sir David Attenborough, we must all change what we do, where and how we build, what we eat, what we cultivate, and really, what we like, so we can be healthier and happier.

Release of Preliminary Public Review Draft of the Sacramento Climate Action Plan

From the City of Sacramento:

The Community Development Department is pleased to announce the release of the preliminary public review draft of the Climate Action Plan (CAP) on July 1, 2022.

This document will be circulated for a 30-day period, several months ahead of the release of the full Draft Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, Draft 2040 General Plan and Draft Master Environmental Impact Report this fall, which will be circulated for 45 days. This approach will allow the community to have advanced review and provide comments on the draft measures to reduce the City’s greenhouse gas emissions. The document is posted on the project webpage and can be found directly here.

Following release of the preliminary public review draft Climate Action Plan, the Sacramento City Council will hold a workshop to discuss additional potential actions that can be taken to achieve carbon neutrality in advance of the CAP’s target date of 2045. This City Council workshop is scheduled for August 16, 2022.

Submit comments on the preliminary draft Climate Action Plan (from July 1 to July 30).

Sac County Candidate Forum: Watch the Video

April 26, 2022 at 6pm

Watch on Youtube below.

Sacramento County District 5 Supervisors seat: Hear what the candidates say about issues affecting Sacramento, including climate change, land use and transportation, equity, housing, business and the prospects for a clean energy economy – before the June 7 primary.

The race for the Sacramento County District 5 Supervisor seat is probably the most important race in the Sacramento region in terms of equity and climate. The County and City of Sacramento are the most populous areas within the Sacramento region and therefore, where they go, so goes the region.  

All District 5 candidates will be participating in the forum. They are (in alphabetical order) Pat Hume, Alex Joe, Steve Ly and Jaclyn Moreno. Moderators will be Capradio’s News Editor Kris Hooks, and Environment and Climate Change Reporter Manola Secaira.

Sponsored by Environmental Council of Sacramento, Citizens’ Climate Lobby Sacramento Chapter, 350 Sacramento, and the Sierra Club Sacramento Group
