Many working groups have formed since 2010.  Each forms for a different purpose.  Some groups are ongoing and others finish their task and dissolve.

About Coalition Working Groups

Their Purpose: Action on climate issues and sustainability in the Davis community can involve many different organizations, skill sets and goals.  Working groups are a way for partners and action oriented individuals to work together to plan activities, design new and innovative projects or to develop policy or strategies for action.

How they form. An idea for an activity or project is identified and developed by a small team from inside or outside the Coalition. This group brings their idea to Cool Davis (Coalition) and requests permission become a formal Working Group under the Cool Davis Coalition to develop and implement the project or activity.
