Winchester’s updated Climate Action Plan, aligned with the Master Plan, is targeted to be released in December 2019. The Climate Action Plan Committee, tasked by the Town Manager with updating the 2011 Plan, is actively soliciting public input through a wide variety of venues, including Climate Week.
In addition to preparing to adapt to and recover from climate change events, Winchester is also continuing to reduce carbon emissions in our municipal, business and residential areas. With approximately 72% of carbon emissions occurring in the residential sector, this offers an important opportunity for residents to take personal action.
Please join us during Climate Week to explore some of the ways in which those of us living and working in Winchester can reduce our carbon footprint and prepare for greater climate resiliency.

Cuba is a nation of paradoxes - leader in health, but with shortages of basic foods; among the highest literacy rates in Latin America, but with constraints on free speech; magnificent restored colonial architecture next to blocks of dilapidated buildings. Kept in a time warp for decades by an economic system controlled by the government, and exacerbated by the United States embargo, Cuba is now emerging to allow private businesses, private property ownership, and public internet access. Barry Pell through his photographs will discuss how its people are embracing and benefitting from the changes, while remaining devoted to the nation’s revolutionary ideals and cultural heritage. This program is supported by a grant from the John and Mary Murphy Educational Foundation.
