This event is free and open to all.  More info: https://mailchi.mp/5094b0b900da/start-off-the-new-year-with-bayren-resources-services-available-for-you-14977969?e=4088c86f1e&fbclid=IwAR0tZHhF4TYwQiuFp58WhIGGtH_h0TxwxCh97UgJVqo4w9n_dqQyBa8qT1g

June 8th Wednesday 12 pm – 2 pm Stop Sempra from Fracking Our Future and Polluting Our Communities! Event by SanDiego350 Sempra’s headquarters  488 8th Avenue San Diego 92101 Join us as we protest Sempra for setting off a Climate Bomb that will massively accelerate methane emissions (a greenhouse gas 86 times more potent than CO2), when the IPCC says we have to stop emissions right now. Sempra, SDG&E’s parent company, is making record profits by ripping off San Diego ratepayers, while trying to kill rooftop solar and also exploiting the tragedy of the Ukraine war to expand their fracked methane gas empire which will make it impossible for us to transition to a clean, green future.  More info: https://sandiego350.org/blog/event/civi_event_1362/?instance_id=5036

June 8th Wednesday 6 pm – 7 pm Expanding EV Infrastructure Event by Electrical Vehicle Association This month we have a guest speaker – Zane DeVitre-Shalauta. He is a graduate student in the Scripps Institute of Oceanography’s program in climate science and policy. Transportation remains the largest source of carbon emissions in the state of California and decarbonizing that sector is going to be key to combating the climate crisis. Zane is working on a project titled Leading the Charge: Ensuring the Future of EV Charging Infrastructure. Widespread EV adoption depends on reliable, equitable charging infrastructure. AB 1738 is a piece of legislation that aims to further this goal. This presentation will touch on the bill itself along with some proposed methods of making EV charging more affordable and accessible.  More info:  https://www.sandiegoev.org/events/

June 9th Thursday 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm “Freeing Energy” Event by North County Climate Change Alliance  —Please join special guest, Bill Nussey, CEO, founder and author of FREEING ENERGY for a discussion of the surprising ways small-scale “local energy” systems will disrupt the century-old power industry from the outside in. Please register HERE: https://us02web.zoom.us/…/tZUrd… Everyone knows that small-scale DERs (distributed energy resources) are a growing trend that represent one of the first challenges in a century of electric utility domination. But what many people do not yet understand is the unstoppable and irresistible nature of this trend. It is not only unleashing an internet-like wave of competition and innovation, it is creating new pathways for resilience, lower cost, and social equity, in the US and across the world. Bill Nussey will share the findings from the 320 interviews across six countries captured in his new book, Freeing Energy. He shares what the US legislators and policymakers can learn from Africa, Australia, and Europe, as well as the history of computers and internet, as they try to navigate a clean energy future.

June 14th Tuesday 11 am to June 15th Wednesday 3 pm 2022 Affordable Housing Summit by International Living Future Institute  Recommended by San Diego Green Building Council Housing plays a critical role in the collective health and equity of neighborhoods and in their resiliency to the effects of climate change. Building affordable housing right now means accounting for these simultaneous crises with each project. It is critical to promote physical and mental health, equity, and to reduce the carbon impacts in buildings, all while balancing the need to rapidly house people more affordably. ILFI’s annual affordable housing summit will bring together speakers and panelists discussing how developers, architects, and builders in this sector are striving for net-positive outcomes in health, equity, and climate, discussing topics such as carbon-positive affordable housing, universal design and disability-forward principles, and avoiding embodied injustices and toxicity in materials. The summit will include interactive sessions and break down actionable steps that attendees can integrate into their work for each of these areas.
