Sunrise Movement Westchester: Youth Climate Action Demands
For far too long, Westchester municipalities have made proclamations of climate progress without actually setting real deadlines for themselves. Westchester's young people demand a change.
Here are our demands for every Westchester municipality:
Commit to meeting the goals outlined by New York's Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act on the municipal level.
Start the process of building a Climate Action Plan that outlines how you will accomplish the goals set out in the Emergency Declaration.
Become a Climate Smart Community & a designated Clean Energy Community in the NYS programs
Have a youth member of your Environmental Committee or Conservation Advisory Board to ensure all of your promises are kept
