Eastham Climate Action Network

Eastham CAN is a group of volunteers working to catalyze Eastham government, businesses, citizens, and other stakeholders to take decisive steps to reduce carbon emissions that accelerate climate change. Coastal communities like Eastham have a lot at stake when it comes to climate change. We recognize the need for urgent action to address the worsening climate emergency.

Our goal is to help Eastham reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 or sooner. We welcome your ideas, questions, and participation. Please get in touch with us at easthamclimateaction@gmail.com.

Eastham Climate Action Committee

The Eastham Climate Action Committee is an official citizen member advisory appointed by the Town of Eastham’s Select Board. The Committee’s primary purpose is to study and make recommendations to the Select Board regarding methods for minimizing the Town’s carbon footprint and the town’s vulnerabilities to the consequences of climate change. To get in touch and learn more about what we do, view the complete Climate Action Committee charge here.

What We’re Doing

Our Eastham CAN volunteers initiated and advocated on behalf of a Climate Emergency Declaration that was approved overwhelmingly at Eastham’s September 2020 Town Meeting.

In partnership with the Eastham Library in 2021, we also sponsored a webinar presentation “Arctic Meltdown and Why It Matters” by Dr. Jennifer Francis, Senior Scientist at Woodwell Climate Research Center.
