“The Real Green New Deal” Series Begins Sunday, April 7, 2:00 PM in Irvine

Beginning April 7, The Green Party of Orange County will present a series of monthly presentations about the Real Green New Deal, a set of proposals to initiate a national mobilization to halt climate change, create 20 million jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, and investing in public transit, sustainable (regenerative) agriculture, conservation and restoration of critical infrastructure, including natural ecosystems.
.
On the first Sunday of each month, the GPOC will feature speakers outlining initiatives to shift the United States economy away from fossil fuels, implement a just transition to community and worker owned systems of clean energy production, invest in green businesses by providing grants and low interest loans to help develop locally-based companies that keep wealth in communities, enact a full employment program to provide 16 million jobs in sustainable energy and energy-retrofitting, mass transit and “complete streets” that promote safe bike and pedestrian traffic, and regional food systems based on sustainable organic agriculture and clean manufacturing.
