From the Maryland Climate Coalition:
On Thursday, November 12th, Delegate Mary Ann Lisanti will join the Maryland Climate Coalition, Harford County Climate Action, green businesses, civic, faith, government, and environmental groups for an “Energy, Health & Climate Expo” at the Edgewood Boys and Girls Club.
Through a speaker presentation and interactive booths, the event will showcase how Marylanders can participate in and benefit from climate solutions—from making their homes more energy efficient through things like solar panel installation to exploring solar job opportunities to speaking out for stronger clean energy policies in the General Assembly.
The expo in Harford County is part of a six-stop “Clean Energy Roadshow” organized by the Maryland Climate Coalition this fall. Each event is highlighting how renewing Maryland’s landmark 2009 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act, which must be reauthorized in 2016, and expanding the state’s clean energy standard to 25% by 2020 will benefit our health, economy and environment.
WHAT: “Energy, Health & Climate Expo: Renewing Maryland Together,” including a speaker presentation with Delegate Mary Ann Lisanti, local Harford County students and activist, and interactive booths with over a dozen organizations and green businesses, and family-friendly activities on energy efficiency and public health. Participants will find resources on saving energy and money by going green at home.
