Suburban sprawl cancels carbon footprint savings of dense urban cores
Date:1/6/2014

f traditional roles in planning urban infrastructure and learn how to better understand the needs of residents in order to craft policies and programs that enable the adoption of energy and carbon-efficient technologies and practices.

One example of this is the CoolCalifornia Challenge, a statewide carbon footprint reduction competition to name the "Coolest California City." The program, run by Jones and Kammen and sponsored by the California Air Resources Board and Energy Upgrade California, will be accepting applications for new cities in February. Each city creates their own, targeted strategies to reduce barriers and increase motivation to engage residents in climate action.

"People need to act within their own spheres of influence, where they feel they can make the most difference," Jones said. "We hope the information provided in these tools will help individuals, organization and cities understand what makes the most impact locally and to enable more tailored climate strategies.
