International Day of Climate Action is a worldwide movement each October 24th. Initiated by young people concerned about climate change and global injustice, International Day of Climate Action is a time for us to come together and work towards a just, equitable, and sustainable future. Explore below how you can take action with NYCP this October 24th on the individual, local, and state levels!

Action at the Individual Level: Connect with NYCP’s Free Clean Energy Coaches

Our free energy coach can help you answer your energy questions, such as:

  • Do I need an energy audit? How do I get one?
  • Are there things I can do myself to cut energy use and save money?
  • Are heat pumps right for me?
  • Can I save money with community solar? How do I choose?
  • Do I need an EV charger? How much do they cost?

Action at the Local Level: Request an NYCP Team Member to Present on NY’s Clean Energy Transition

New Yorkers for Clean Power presents Green the Grid & Electrify Everything, an engaging and illustrated walk through the Climate Act and all things Clean Power in New York. Green the Grid answers the questions you have and breaks down jargon to make the answers accessible to non-experts, while also including enough detail to engage policy enthusiasts. Come away energized and hopeful about the climate action path before us.

Action at the State Level: Accelerate an Equitable Transition off of Fracked Gas in our Buildings!

Buildings are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in New York State. There is no pathway to meeting New York’s legally mandated greenhouse gas emissions reductions without dramatically decarbonizing buildings. Energy and policy experts worldwide agree that beneficial electrification of heating and appliances with energy-efficient technologies such as heat pumps and induction stoves is the best and most cost-effective pathway for decarbonization of the building sector. These technologies reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also providing building occupants with immediate benefits in terms of health, costs, safety, and comfort.
