Climate Mobilization Action Plan (CMAP)

Climate Mobilization Action Plan

The city recently hosted a kickoff event for developing the next phase of climate action. More than 400 attendees had the opportunity to view a presentation to hear why this new plan is so important. They then had the chance to visit specific action area tables to learn about current activities, discuss game-changing solutions and sign up to participate in the process that will result in a new climate action plan for Boulder.

Next Steps

  • Through Mid-November: Determine interest for participation in the five focus areas of CMAP
  • End of November: Develop engagement plan 
  • Early December: Create community teams to develop CMAP strategies
  • Early 2020: CMAP development and community engagement
  • Mid-2020: CMAP adoption

 CMAP Overview

This process was discussed with council at the July 9 Study Session that will result in a new climate strategy in response to renewed climate urgency. This strategy is called the Climate Mobilization Action Plan, or CMAP. Fully addressing climate change will require immediate, system-scale action to create an equitable future, rapidly reduce emissions and accelerate technological innovation. The city sees equity and resilience as core considerations of climate programs and policies:

  • Energy Systems:  What’s the next frontier of innovation in how we power our lives through sustainable, renewable energy resources?  
  • Regenerative Ecosystems:  How can ecosystem stewardship help to recapture and drawdown carbon from the atmosphere?   
  • Circular Materials Economy:  How can we go beyond our recycle-compost-landfill approach to create a closed loop of goods and services in which nothing goes to waste?  
  • Land Use:  How do our land use decisions impact our energy use and emissions?  How can we design communities to reduce consumption of all resources?   
  • Financial Systems:  How can our financial choices—where our money is invested, who provides our financial services, what types of products and services we buy—help drive innovation and rapid transition to a renewable, sustainable society?
