Education & Outreach
What more can we learn about living sustainably?
MSH believes that education and community outreach are the underpinnings of successful campaigns. Success begins when the community learns about a topic whether it be renewable energy, community power, or electric vehicle transition and the roles each play in successful climate action.
To help educate our regional community we hold presentations and workshops as well as welcome student internships from local universities and colleges to learn while working on our existing campaigns. Learn more about each of our initiatives below.
Monadnock Sustainability Roundtable
MSH hosts annual Roundtable events that feature sustainability initiatives and projects of local energy committees and municipalities, non profit and grass root organizations, and small businesses.
In November of 2021, MSH partnered with the Alliance for Youth Climate Leadership to host our second Monadnock Sustainability Roundtable. This virtual event featured five different sustainability projects: including Peterborough’s journey to 100% Renewable Energy and a local business’s efforts to make Keene’s food waste management more sustainable. Watch a recording of the Roundtable below:

Climate Solutions Workshops
Most of us, along with the vast majority of world scientists know that the climate is threatened by greenhouse gases put into the air by human activity. We know there are a lot of potential actions that might be taken to counteract this threat.
But how do we choose the most effective things we can do? Is there an easy way to know which actions for limiting greenhouse gases would have the most effect on future global temperatures?
The Climate Solutions Workshop organized by the Monadnock Sustainability Hub is designed to provide some of those answers. In an interactive format, participants select climate actions such as energy efficiency, carbon pricing, renewables, reducing deforestation, and carbon dioxide removal. Using the En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator tool, the effects of these actions on global temperature and other factors are explored first hand.
En-ROADS was developed by scientists from Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, and MIT Sloan using a vast array of of climate and energy models. Try out the En-ROADS simulator here.
