Join the 3rd session of the AARP / JCOS 5-part ‘Carbon Footprint’ series! Wednesday, April 6

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint‘ is a five-part webinar series led by the Juneau Commission on Sustainability and AARP Alaska Community Action Team volunteers. The series focuses on steps that people can take to reduce their carbon footprint and build climate-resilient communities.

The next webinar installment
“We’re Runnin’ on Rain – Exploring Electrified Transportation”
is Wednesday, April 6!

More information and registration for the session can be found HERE.

A quote in recent Juneau Empire coverage on the series states, ““The whole idea is providing people with tools and empowering people,” said Linda Kruger, one of the series’ organizers during a recent video interview. Event organizers said climate change can feel oppressive, and the goal is for the series to offer hope as well as specific examples of how to be part of the solution.”

Are you EV curious?

Perhaps you count yourself among the 43% of Americans who say they will lease or purchase an EV within the next decade? If you are an EV skeptic or already a convert, join the Juneau Commission on Sustainability and AARP Alaska on Wednesday, April 6 for a lively look at electrified transportation. Panelists Duff Mitchell from the Juneau Electric Vehicle Association, Devon Kibby from the Alaska Electric Vehicle Association, and Rich Ross from Capital Transit will share:

  • What models of EVs are on the market or about to be released?
  • What’s the plan for expanding EV charging stations?
  • What’s the deal with electric ferries?
  • When will we be able to drive the Alcan with an EV?
  • How are old EV batteries disposed of?
  • How’s Capital Transit’s electric bus performing?

The webinar will broadcast via Zoom and at AARP Alaska’s Facebook page on Wednesday, April 6 from 6-7:30 PM.
