Millennials get blamed for … well, everything, but you can’t pin climate change on them. Still, that’s not stopping dozens of millennial leaders in Massachusetts from taking action to solve it.
Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu and Sen. Eric Lesser (Longmeadow) were among the elected officials, entrepreneurs, architects, researchers and nonprofit leaders who came together on Dec. 3 to discuss strategy to get Massachusetts to 100 percent renewable energy. We hosted the event, held at the Boston University BUild Lab.
“As millennials, our lives will be affected for decades to come by the way our society produces and consumes energy,” said Environment Massachusetts State Director Ben Hellerstein. “The good news is that we have the power to do something about it.”
The summit concluded with remarks from Hawaii State Rep. Chris Lee on how Massachusetts can follow in his state’s footsteps by committing to 100 percent renewable energy.
