Great News!! Greenburgh was chosen as 1 of 10 National Spotlight Conversation Communities on Earth Day, April 22nd!! 
This event will be held at the new Library and will focus on presenting the municipal Climate Action Plan to key stakeholders within the municipality & community. 
Oakland, California – ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA, the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, AmericaSpeaks and Earth Day Network are proud to announce the selection of 10 “Spotlight Conversations” as part of the 2009 National Conversation on Climate Action.  
“We look forward to supporting these 10 Spotlight Conversation communities on Earth Day,” said Michelle Wyman, Executive Director of ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA. “This will be an opportunity for the communities to advance their local climate protection goals and feed into a crucial national dialogue on the imperative of local climate action.”As a membership association of 500 U.S. local governments advancing climate protection and sustainability, ICLEI will work directly with the Spotlight Conversation communities to build the event into their ongoing climate action planning.The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies will bring cutting edge research on the local impacts of a warming world to the table for this event, in particular connecting climate scientists with municipal officials to pin point the best solutions to this urgent global challenge. More information can be found at www.climateconversation.org..
Our Task Force could really use the help of a volunteer or assistant to do the community greenhouse gas inventory for Greenburgh.  This job involves contacting Con Ed and schools and businesses in Greenburgh to get information about their energy use and enter it into the ICLEI CACP software. 
The greenhouse gas (GHG)  inventory administrative assistant or intern should have a demonstrated ability to work independently with minimal supervision, to assume responsibility and gather information by phone and in person. 
Completing the GHG  inventory requires online training in the CACP Climate Action Plan software, which is on a computer in the Building Department. Good online research skillls are a plus, as is knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel. He or she will need to  identify sources for gathering the data regarding carbon emissions (energy use) from Con Ed and from the residential, school and business sectors in unincorporated Greenburgh.  This involves making phone calls to gather data,and entering the data into the CACP software.  Also helpful is the ability to meet with the Greenburgh Climate Action Task Force from time to time, which meets alternate Monday nights.
