Brookline Climate Week is Here!

E-mail Print PDF


Brookline Climate 4th annual Climate Week runs from January 20th to 26th. Brookline is responding to the climate crisis in many ways, from incentives to spur solar installations and energy-saving home upgrades to cultivating green spaces and tree plantings.


Climate Week is a community opportunity to focus, learn, resolve, and take action.  Many town departments, businesses, non-profits, artists, and volunteers have collaborated to produce this year’s events and displays.  Climate Week offers an array of opportunities for all ages, including kids, teens and families, to learn and to act.  All events are free and open to the public unless noted.  For complete, up-to-date listings visit

Our climate mission? Work together to reduce the town’s carbon footprint 20% by 2020 in line with the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act.
