Last week was exciting, and the month is just halfway over. Make sure you are getting involved in Cleantech. Sometimes it might seem overwhelming but locally there are many things going on you can connect with. With Facebook showing us things happening around the world don’t forget to connect with your community to accelerate the Cleantech Revolution.

Just last week we saw how the excitement in Sustainability and Cleantech continues to grow in Sacramento.  At Green Drinks the Association of Women in Water, Energy and the Environment (AWWEE) showed up and over 70 people playing trivia, with questions on sustainability. If you don’t know AWWEE, you should check them out.  On Wednesday SMUD and FreeWire demoed their mobile batteries to Sac EV whose semi monthly meeting filled the parking lot with 20+ EVs.  Friday heard the voice of local Students in a Walk Out Protest to bring attention to Climate Change.

At CleanStart we are putting the finishing touches on our 2019 Progress report to present at the Cleantech meetup and we are planning several related programs for the Cleantech community from a Discussion on the Future of the Utility and a Startup Weekend Around Sustainability the Solstice June 21st. These are just the things we can announce, there are several more in the hopper.
CleanStart’s programs are not the only reasons to stay connected. It is an exciting time to be getting involved in Sustainability. While the problems facing the world serious and imminent, that also means now is the time to get involved. This weekend you could check out Upcycle Pop’s Eco Market.  Next month on the 22nd is Earth Day and there are events happening all month highlighting how you can get involved. Of course there will be Green Drinks on 9th and the Cleantech Meetup on the 25th, but there is also ECOS Earth day on the 28th and SacEV is putting supporting EV activities all month.
