Who we are
For the 2013 Spring Brookline Town Meeting, the Green Caucus has endorsed Warrant Article 22 (resolution for a study of transit signal prioritization for MBTA trolleys on Beacon St.) and Article 23 (resolution opposing transportation of Canadian tar sands products through New England). For more information about these articles, see the Meetings page.
The Green Caucus is a group of Brookline Town Meeting members committed to helping Brookline become a Green Community. The Green Caucus mission is: "Through Town Meeting, promote a sustainable future, a lower impact on the natural environment, and an improved quality of life for the greater Brookline Community." If you are a Brookline Town Meeting member interested in joining the Green Caucus, please go to the Contact page and send an email message to Paul Harris. For a list of current members, please go to the Members page.
The Green Caucus was launched by twelve members from eight precincts in a retreat from September 16-18, 2011. For information about meetings held since then, see the Meetings page.
Think Globally, Act Locally
Climate change is a serious issue which may have disastrous consequences for future generations. To address climate change and protect our natural environment, local communities need to show significant results. European cities and towns are leading the way. Brookline can learn from them and become a leading Green Community in the U.S.
