February 2020


Hello Friends and Partners - 

2020 is shaping up to be a big year for Seattle climate action and OSE. Just a few of things we will be working on are: partnering with community to address climate injustice and implement Green New Deal priorities in our City policies and programs, continuing to expand our Fresh Bucks programs so more Seattle residents can afford healthy food, helping homeowners and renters move away from dirty oil, and protecting Seattle's urban forest by updating Seattle's Urban Forestry Stewardship Plan. Lots more in the works this year that I look forward to sharing with you in the coming months! 

 Thank you for your continued support and partnership, 

Jessica Finn Coven, Director
Seattle Office of Sustainability & Environment
