Ice on Fire

Join us for the screening of an amazing documentary narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio. Ice on Fire is a revealing and hopeful documentary that explores many new and innovative solutions being developed to address the climate crisis.
Ice on Fire emphasizes the importance of an immediate, two-pronged approach to reversing the crisis: reducing carbon emissions through traditional renewable energy sources and new ones, like tidal energy, and implementing “drawdown” measures, focusing on methods for drawing down and sequestering carbon, including direct air capture, sea farms, urban farms, biochar, marine snow, bionic leaves and others.”

Joining us via Skype will be Paul Hawken who is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, author, and activist. He is also known for the book Drawdown. http://www.paulhawken.com

A Bold New Transportation Vision in 5 Big Moves

Presentation by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG)

Join us for this presentation about SANDAG’s bold new vision for building a world class transportation system for San Diego!

“SANDAG is developing a bold new vision for San Diego Forward: The 2021 Regional Plan with the goal of transforming the way people and goods move throughout the San Diego region. The region’s population is anticipated to reach four million by 2050, which will lead to new challenges in maintaining an efficient, equitable, sustainable, and accessible transportation system. Our approach needs to evolve.”

This talk will discuss this new vision and the 5 Big Moves. The 5 Big Moves are the key strategies that will outline a path forward that builds upon existing infrastructure, enhances connectivity, increases safety and sustainability, and improves quality of life.

Complementary light refreshments will be provided by Elaine Byran from Body and Soul Nourishment. This free event is hosted by the North County Climate Change Alliance and the Vista Public Library.
