Cool Davis wins Breathe California Award
Cool Davis was awarded the 2014 Clean Air Award for Leadership by Breathe California, during the celebration of May as Clean Air Month on May 21st. The award – one of five given to individuals, cities, businesses and community organizations by Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails, showcases how each of us has the power to help improve air quality.
Cool Davis was recognized for its innovative work integrating arts, music, dance, poetry, faith communities, businesses and educators in solutions to climate change.
“This is at the heart of what Cool Davis is all about,” said Cool Davis Executive Director Christine Granger. “We can’t just blame climate problems on fossil fuels and power companies. We also have to look to our own lives and start changing the way we live. We need creative artists to be involved, too, because people need to connect to the emotional aspects of the climate issue and come up with innovative ways to change.”
“Cool Davis’ leadership exemplifies how dedicated this community is to reducing emissions, exploring new technology and achieving measurable goals for the region,” said Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails CEO Kori Titus. “They are a prime example of how individuals and businesses can come together to improve air quality and sustainably plan for the future.”
The 2014 Clean Air Awards were held at the Sacramento State University Union Ballroom on May 28, with the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District as a lead sponsor. Originally founded in 1917, the organization that is today Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails is an independent, locally focused non-profit.

Cool Davis is a coalition of citizens, the City of Davis, and community organizations working to empower our community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
