Earth Day Action

Volunteers are needed immediately for help with Earth Day event planning and outreach
programs. Please contact
Jo Gardias to discuss your areas of interest.

 

More Ways to Volunteer

We advocate for robust climate policy in Palo Alto and surrounding communities while educating residents on ways to mitigate climate change by taking personal and community action. 

We have three main teams:

  • Content creation puts together educational materials and shows examples of electrification in the community.

  • Outreach works to distribute content and give presentations.

  • Advocacy  works with the city and Palo Alto Utilities to take specific actions to fight climate change and enable equitable city-wide building electrification. 

 

Help Palo Alto fight climate change by reaching our city’s 2030 goal of 80% carbon emissions reduction!

We would love your help in joining one of our 3 groups or bringing your own creative ideas to the electrification, Earth Day, or other campaigns.

350SV Palo Alto Climate Team in Action

Whether it is creating petitions, videos, or social media, talking to residents at Farmer’s Markets or at neighborhood events, hosting candidate forums, partnering with other climate, faith or social justice groups, or engaging with girl scouts, school children, or social groups, the 350SV Palo Alto Climate Team is showing up in our community.

Electrify Our Buildings

In Palo Alto, our electricity is 100% carbon neutral. Switching to electric appliances significantly reduces the carbon footprint of residential and non residential buildings, while improving safety, energy efficiency and air quality.

100%

of electricity in Palo Alto is carbon neutral

 

32%

of greenhouse-gas emissions in Palo Alto are produced by buildings

Buildings are major pollutants

Almost one-third of greenhouse gas emissions in Palo Alto are produced by buildings. In California, buildings are the second largest source of pollution. We can’t meet robust climate action goals without electrification of our homes and other buildings.
