(BOSTON) – This week, Representative Joan Meschino (D-Hull) joined the founder of the Massachusetts chapter of Elders Climate Action and seniors in Lasell Village to offer a presentation on the Next Generation Climate Roadmap, its implementation, and the Commonwealth’s next steps in tackling the climate crisis. Since the passage of the Next Generation Climate Roadmap, Representative Meschino has given dozens of these presentations to various groups across Massachusetts. 

During most presentations, Representative Meschino outlines the key components of the Roadmap, reviews emerging climate legislation and her own bills in the energy and environment space, and offers thoughts on the future of climate legislation in the Commonwealth. 

Representative Meschino has also given presentations on environmental justice and the decarbonization of the transportation sector to national groups like Climate XChange and Ceres.

“It is promising that so many groups and leaders across the Commonwealth have taken such an interest in the Roadmap and its implementation,” said Representative Meschino. “The 2050 Roadmap aligns the Massachusetts economy with the pressing urgency of the climate science, but its successful implementation relies upon a committed administration and citizenry. To see this commitment manifest as the interest and engagement I see during these events is encouraging for our local communities’ climate futures.”

As a leader in the energy and environment space and a passionate advocate for environmental justice, Representative Meschino plans to continue offering these presentations to interested communities and groups.

Representative Meschino’s work to advance the 2050 Roadmap and her continued commitment as a climate champion has garnered her accolades, one of which she will receive next week. Alongside María Belén Power, Andrea Nyamekye, Jeremy Grantham, CBE, and Mass General Brigham, Representative Meschino will be honored during the Environmental League of Massachusetts’ Earth Night celebration on May 19 for her work at the intersection of climate, health, and equity.
