Friday, July 26th, 5:00 - 6:30 pm
Warehouse Bar and Grille (40 Broad St., Boston -- near Faneuil Hall)
Sponsored by Environment Massachusetts, Massachusetts Climate Action Network, Massachusetts Sierra Club, Climate Action Business Association, and Clean Water Action
This is the first-ever Millennials for 100% Renewables Happy Hour. Meet other leaders in their 20s and 30s from the business community, government, and nonprofit sector for networking and conversation about a clean, renewable future for Massachusetts.
As millennials, we'll feel the impacts of dirty energy on our health and our climate for a long time. The good news is that we have the power to do something about it. That's why millennials from across Massachusetts are coming together to advocate for a rapid transition to clean sources of energy, like solar and wind, to power our electric grid, our homes and businesses, and our transportation system.
At the happy hour, we'll hear from millennial leaders including Representative Sean Garballey [tentative], and unveil a new website profiling the work of millennial clean energy leaders from across the state. Bring along your friends and co-workers for drinks, conversation, and good company.

In addition to protecting Boston Harbor from pollution (the plant treats wastewater from 43 communities in the greater Boston area), Deer Island sources renewable energy from solar panels and wind turbines, as well as an anaerobic digestion facility, all of which will be part of the tour. This is a great opportunity to see clean energy up close and think about what additional on-site clean energy options your town might be able to take advantage of.
We hope to see you at this exciting event!
