The MT2030 Pledge
Mountain towns are comprised of passionate citizens, vibrant businesses, and natural splendor. However, we are threatened by the impacts of climate change in our economic stability, water scarcity, wildfires, snowfall and our way of life.
The climate crisis is the defining issue of our generation and must be addressed at all levels. As leaders in mountain communities, it is our obligation to address this issue in a bold, timely, and meaningful way. In the next year, we commit to:
1. Lead community conversations about setting courageous and action-based climate goals that make significant impacts by 2030.
2. Engage other leaders in our community, region, and state in aligning climate action.
3. Actively share and collaborate with other communities on implementing best practices and creating new solutions.
Our actions will demonstrate that mountain towns, local businesses, and other stakeholders can and should lead the nation in the sustainability movement. We invite any community, business, and non-profit worldwide to join us in taking courageous steps to transition to a carbon-free economy.
