      While raking today I couldn’t believe how many beaches were in my yard. The snow storm really took the trees out.

    I am having a little trouble finding a good answer to this questions.  I will continue to search for one.

    Where does the energy in your region come from? Which energy is a renewable source?

    We get our energy from National Grid but I am not sure that we do any renewable energy but I will research this further

    As we are almost at the end of our challenge I realize that there are actions and habits that have have started and plan to continue.  This was a fun and informative exercise!

      I’ve been told it takes seven full days to begin a routine. Now that it’s been more than a week- some things are becoming second nature for me.

    Statistics will be key to meeting these ambitious targets—we cannot achieve what we cannot measure—but no accepted, standardized method yet exists for linking the ambitious, global indicator framework of the SDGs to a country’s specific local context.

    What was it like to create a readiness plan? Did you find other resources you could share?

    WE have talked about and have finally put together a readiness plan.  We are an adult household but we do have 2 pets that we need to include in our plan.
  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Choose Clean/Renewable Energy
    How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the clean energy shift?

    Nancy Leo 4/27/2022 7:16 AM
    i think for me the best way to get others involved is by starting a conversation.  I know my husband and I have had conversations with neighbors just giving our point of view but also listening to what they have to say.  Many of our neighbors have lived in the area their whole life where we have been here for about 20 years.

    Izzy and I continue our walks and colleting the trash along the way.  It odes surprise me that everyday we have at least 2 or 3 bottles and cans to recycle.
