Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on a local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Vision 2020 Environment Committee and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.

Do you have ideas for ways that Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewables, and manage our environmental resources more sustainably? If you do, please come to one of our monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.

Changing the Climate: How Public Health, Cities, and the Media Can Advance Climate Solutions

B.U. School of Public Health Symposia

72 East Concord St., Boston

Friday, April 20, 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

Please Register

Climate change will have enormous impacts on human health and well-being throughout the world. In response, many cities are developing farsighted policies to reduce carbon emissions while also adapting to ongoing changes. However, high-level political support for climate action remains weak, and policymakers need to be able to articulate the benefits of their climate policies. Public health researchers are documenting how urban climate solutions can directly benefit the health of local residents, but this research has not yet been communicated in a manner that has motivated effective action. This symposium will bring together thought leaders from public health, cities, and journalism to develop strategies that bring greater attention to—and produce visionary actions that address—the global climate challenge. Co-hosted with the Pulitzer Center. Additional collaborators include Boston University Initiative on Cities; Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public HealthInnovate@BU; and Sustainability@BU.
