Community Climate Conversation Hosted by 350 Santa Barbara

February 24, 2022 @ 6:00 am PST

On Thursday, February 24 at 6:00pm, 350 Santa Barbara will host an online community conversation on regenerating the urban environment with guest speaker, Professor John Foran, and UCSB students working on Eco Vista. Community members will have an opportunity to discuss the project and further ideas about envisioning a better future for our region.

To register for this free event:

“‘Eco Vista’ was the name chosen in 2017 by a group of students at the University of California, Santa Barbara acting together with long-time community members to describe their vision of turning their rather unusual community of Isla Vista into an ecovillage in the next ten years. Unique because 23,000 people live together in an area of .54 square miles, with eighty percent of them between the ages of 18 and 24,” according to John Foran.

Eco Vista was formed with the idea “that together we might create a place that is life-affirming for all its inhabitants and that might inspire others elsewhere—particularly young people in their own communities—to use their imaginations to create the innovative future communities we all want to live in, right now!”

In his book, Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation, environmentalist Paul Hawken writes: “What becomes of civilization in this century will be determined by what happens in urban and suburban environments. …If there is to be a regenerated earth, if one day greenhouse gases are reduced and drawn down from the atmosphere, it will happen because of the practices, policies, and leadership of citizens and cities.”

In March and April, the Community Climate Conversations series will feature local climate solutions for agriculture and wildlife conservation. In May, the series will conclude with a discussion of Hawken’s book, Regeneration. Copies of the book, donated by 350 Santa Barbara and The Society of Fearless Grandmothers-Santa Barbara, are available at the Santa Barbara and Goleta public libraries
