The other day, I was walking back to work from a conference in downtown Washington, when I noticed this awesome bike share stand. My first thought was, “Man, I wish I had my helmet!” My second thought was, “There’s a great community solution for fighting climate change!” (Or something along those lines.)
Every day, cities and towns across the country are working to implement practical, common-sense solutions to climate change, that not only help our planet, but create healthier communities. Whether it’s building LEED certified elementary schools, creating public transit systems in growing areas, or helping landowners protect their forests for generations, change is happening.
I wanted to share this picture of the bike station, because it inspired me to know that my community was working for climate change solutions.
We’d love to know where you are seeing community-based solutions to climate change.
If you see something that inspires you, take a picture and post it to a photo sharing site like Flickr or Picassa and share the link to your picture in our comments section along with a brief explanation of the photo. We’ll post a selection of the photos as they come in.
Don’t have a photo? That’s cool too. Just tell us what you’re seeing in the comments section and we’ll share it with the rest of the community.
