The Climate Change & Environmental Justice Team is doing research toward a possible anti-idling campaign that would focus on local schools.
Team leaders are considering how to strategically select the schools based on number of students from MACG members and other criteria. They are also researching appropriate monitoring technology to enable monitoring of data, comparing vehicle emission levels during student arrival and departure times to the rest of the school day. They hope to get school administrators involved and engage science teachers. As the campaign concept becomes more clear, they will present to MACG leaders for buy-in, and campaign participation.
