As 2019 draws to a close, Georgians have a lot of environmental victories to celebrate! As we continue to build on our 100% clean energy progress across the state, and particularly in Savannah, we can expect a lot in 2020.
In September, we began working with a great team of Environment Georgia interns from Savannah State, Georgia Southern, and SCAD that in a few short months published editorials in the Savannah Morning News here and here, gathered photo petitions, held informational panels on their campuses and coordinated our Honk-a-Thon on Election Day to drive people to the polls and remind them about 100% Savannah.
Started to build a 100% Savannah coalition that is now 14 strong including Namaste Savannah, Civvies, and Zunzi’s Savannah!
Presented the story of local level success at the Georgia Climate Conference with Mayor Eady, Commissioner Denson and Sustainability Directors from Atlanta and Savannah Shelby Buso and Nick Deffley.
Watched as a new Savannah City Council and Mayor were elected (many have shared their support for a 100% clean and renewable Savannah!).
Finally, we are growing 100% Savannah’s social media presence through the @100_SavannahGA twitter account I'm running--give us a follow for more regular updates!
Thank you for your continued support of Environment Georgia!
Have a Happy New Year!
