HoCo Climate Change 

Needs You !

 
HoCo Climate Change (formerly Climate Change Initiative of Howard County) is an all-volunteer group of Howard County citizens working to reduce Howard County's carbon footprint and to promote a clean energy future. We can't do it alone. We need your help. Explore our website to learn ways you can get involved, through discussion circles, advocacy, local events, and more. As the historian Howard Zinn said, "Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world."

Climate change is happening faster than we all anticipated.
