THIS MONTH’S FEATURE PRESENTATION:
If you’re saying to yourself, “Why the hell hasn’t the City done more on sustainability?”, this may be a worthwhile time to interrogate a person working there. Alisha Pegan, an employee of the Environment Department, wants to provide a broad overview of the City’s progress (or not), how decisions are made in City Hall, and ways to get involved. She will talk about so many Boston plans: Renew Boston, Climate Ready Boston, Zero Waste Boston, and Carbon Free Boston. And, she will leave a ginormous amount of time for questions.
ABOUT ALISHA PEGAN
Alisha Pegan joined the City of Boston as a fellow in September 2017 to work on energy efficiency, and now is a coordinator for Climate Ready Boston. She brings the design thinking and social justice lens to her work.
