Imagine. What would a climate-solved Arlington look like?

Presented in partnership with Parks and Recreation, Department of Environmental Services, and EcoAction Arlington.

The urgency of climate change is real and can be overwhelming and anxiety-inducing. But spending time and energy in imagining a future in which a problem is already solved can encourage taking action in the present. So, inspired by author Bina Venkataraman’s idea of the Optimist’s Telescope, let’s take a look through the telescope 50 years into Arlington’s future and imagine that we see an Arlington that is successfully combating climate change. What does Arlington look like? How can we each contribute to taking steps and decisions now that will help us get there? Join us for this three-part journey to transform Arlington into a world leader in climate action.
