WHAT:  The La Crosse Common Council unanimously passed a resolution setting sustainability goals for transitioning to carbon neutrality and 100% renewable energy by 2050.  

This media event is to celebrate that action.  Co-sponsors of this resolution Barb Jannsen and Justice Weaver will explain the local need for addressing this global crisis.  Mayor Kabat, who previously signed to join Mayors for 100% Clean Energy, will explain some of the actions the city has already taken to begin the process.

With the passage of this resolution, La Crosse becomes the fifth “Ready for 100” city in Wisconsin, joining more than 100 cities across the country in this Sierra Club sponsored initiative to begin addressing climate change at the local level.  

The La Crosse resolution originated from the Sustainable La Crosse Commission, and some commission members will be there to explain where we go from here.
