The Convenient Truth

Renewables are Good for Business, People and Environment Right Now.

Colorado has a choice.

We can continue to support old fashioned, dirty energy which is no longer safe for our environment, health and prosperity.

Or we can flip the switch to do it right.

The convenient truth is that renewable energy production is now
economically more beneficial than coal, oil and gas.

It is also the only option we have to keep Colorado beautiful and vibrant.

CLIMATE COLORADO’S MISSION AND FOCUS

OUR VISION:  Climate Colorado approaches the global climate crisis a local problem that we can solve together.

OUR MISSION: To centralize and strategically focus all of Colorado’s renewable energy efforts while tracking and promoting accomplishments city-by-city, county-by-county and district-by-district across the entire state towards our specific goals.

OUR GOAL:  Climate Colorado’s ambitious but attainable goal is to switch to safe, clean and renewable energy resources and programs to make our state “Net Zero” by 2020.

There are a lot of folks and organizations doing tremendous work on climate change and making a real difference. But all seem to be going in different directions, working on varied goals for specific issues and problems without continuity or collaboration. Having discussed this concern with many of these independent organizations, each agree our approach would accelerate the potential for success to meet the crucial goals we need to reach by 2020.

The Climate Colorado’s primary campaign will implement a step-by-step program with goals and objectives to help individuals and businesses move to renewable energy. It will support the effort with a series of programs all aimed at increasing awareness, education and access to the resources we already have to make this all possible. The first goal of Climate Colorado is to work with all climate and environmental organizations to eliminate the inefficiency of overlap and duplicate efforts.

PROGRAMS IN OUR STRATEGIC PLAN

Connect the Switch 2020 Community

Create a network for collaboration and promotion of all climate and environmental organizations (NGO’s) to eliminate the inefficiency of overlap and duplicate efforts to set good actors in place in each city and county across the state to move the needle to net zero.

1st Annual Climate Summit

Bring key Colorado stakeholders together, including citizens, city council/mayors/managers, county commissioners, NGO’s, and business leaders with the objective to reate a blue print and master plan to solve our climate crisis by 2020. Event: Nov. 15-16, 20014 in Boulder.

The Switch 2020 Contract

Develop a compelling, practical and rewarding plan and virtual commitment to be signed by home owners, businesses and municipal operations. A focused, measurable and doable contract to inspire participation across the state.

Education

Introduce and produce strategic education programs about Climate Change in Colorado to train new leaders to solve the problems. The programs: Climate Change is Elementary for K-8 and The Net Zero Impact Case Study Competition for High School and College Age Students.

Outreach

Create a network of 10 representatives in 10 cities and counties by year end. Prototype the Small Home Mobile Colorado Energy Bank featuring real tools and resources to engage people, businesses and local government across the state to in Switch 2020.

Documentary & eBook

Produce the “Solving Colorado’s Climate Crisis” documentary & eBook to raise awareness about historic and contemporary the luminaries and projects that are true acts and models for a Sustainable Net Zero Colorado.

Mapping Results
