Montclair is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 43% by 2030. 

In fighting climate change, becoming climate resilient & protecting Montclair's local ecology, the more of us who join together in action, the greater our cumulative impact on the future of our town, region and planet.

We made it easy to learn the 10 actions that matter, to take action and inspire others with the great work you are/will be been doing. Actions 1 to 3 are the most critical for mitigating climate change [link to climate action plan]

1) See the Checklist of actions below; what each action means, why its important and your next steps. 

    For more inspiration, you'll see the goals that we need to reach for certain actions as well.

2) Check off what you have done/plan on doing in the next year. That way we can tally up the collective results and        keep inspiring one another. 

3) Come back to this portal every 6 months - check off any new actions taken.
