2014, what an exciting year it’s been!
Making strides for a greener Boston.
A new Mayor, programs, and events that came about,
here are few of the year’s highlights worth pointing out.
It was the year of Boston’s Climate Action Plan Update,
in hopes for a more sustainable future and greenhouse gases abate.
The much anticipated launch of the updated Plan is near,
but first, the Draft for Public Comment made its big premiere.
Boston joined the City Energy Project and C40 Climate Leadership Group too
Funding for climate preparedness rose and our bond with other cities grew.
Named Climate Action Champion by the White House, our city is nationally respected.
For the Rockefeller Resilient 100 City list, Beantown was also elected.
For Earth Day, big names came to party
Boston’s own Mayor Walsh, Senator Markey,
Secretary Moniz and Administrator McCarthy!
Sharing words of inspiration for Bostonians that day
and throwing the opening pitch for the crowd at Fenway.
This year’s Greenovate Boston Award winners were impressive
and Mayor’s Carbon Cup leaders stand out with goals quite progressive.
All community members have a critical role to play
inspiring others to take climate action by leading the way
We enjoyed Boston’s award-winning water and ditched the plastic,
#CompostBos came back and the results were fantastic!
Saving over 2,200 pounds of food scraps and counting.
It’s now here to stay with popularity mounting.
We have much to celebrate with the successes of 2014.
But lots more work is needed to make this city the most green.
Encouraging sustainable growth in a city propelled by innovation and drive,
In 2015, let’s all do our part to keep the movement alive!
