Archived News Release: May 24, 2023 - The City of Ann Arbor's Office of Sustainability and Innovations is excited to announce the third annual A2ZERO Week!
A2ZERO week is a weeklong celebration of Ann Arbor's adoption of the A2ZERO plan – a plan that commits the community to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in a just and equitable way by the year 2030. This year's A2ZERO week celebrates three years since the adoption of the A2ZERO plan with a series of activities taking place from June 4th-10th.
“A2ZERO week is a chance for the entire community to celebrate what we've been able to accomplish together, reflect on areas for growth, and chart a course for future success," said Dr. Missy Stults, Sustainability and Innovations Director for the City of Ann Arbor. “Achieving A2ZERO requires an all-hands on deck approach and that is why we are taking this week to invite everyone into the movement."
Kicking off with the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run on June 4th and wrapping up with Ann Arbor's Summer Festival on June 10th, the week is filled with a series of activities for everyone in the community. Portrait drawing by solar-powered robots, circular economy tours, seminars with the Humane Society, climate trivia, movie unveilings, climate-focused board games, plant-forward eating challenges, craft cocktails made from local ingredients, the unveiling of the City's second resilience hub, and so much more will be highlighted during the week. A full calendar of events can be found at: A2gov.org/A2ZEROWeek.
