Ohio communities stepping up to lead the way by reducing carbon emissions
Leaders from across Ohio joined together to launch Power a Clean Future Ohio, a nonpartisan organization that is dedicated to working with local officials to develop equitable global climate change solutions. The organization is committed to reducing carbon emission throughout Ohio in big and small ways that make sense for each local community.
Power a Clean Future Ohio will work directly with local elected officials, businesses, faith groups, advocacy organizations and others to inform and incentivize action at the community level to combat climate change and spur the economic growth and development that results from embracing clean technologies and advanced transportation.
"Ohio Citizen Action joined with leaders across the state to launch Power a Clean Future Ohio because you deserve a clean future for yourself, your children and your community," Ohio Citizen Action Executive Director Rachael Belz said in their press release. "This is an ideal opportunity for clean energy initiatives to come from the grassroots up, from the voices of Ohioans often left out of these conversations."
To highlight the momentum at the local level, Power a Clean Future Ohio will join with Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley and others to convene advocates, elected officials and industry experts from across Ohio and the Midwest for the Ohio Clean Energy Summit: Local Communities Lead on April 30th at the Xavier University Cintas Center. The summit will feature announcements on new clean energy initiatives and will provide a forum to discuss how local governments can access tools and resources to advance carbon reduction strategies to create a healthier, more prosperous community.
