Achieving our 2020 goals
Bedford 2020 Coalition (B 2020) was incorporated as a nonprofit on December 2, 2009. Its purpose is to oversee implementation of Bedford’s Climate Action Plan. The formation of B 2020 was the culmination of several years of grassroots activities to address environmental issues impacting our town and the surrounding communities, including the work of the BEAP, the Town’s adoption of a Climate Action Plan as well as a full day Environmental Summit held January, 2009, co-hosted by the BEAP and the Bedford Garden Club, that was attended by 1000 people and was supported by over 120 partnering organizations.
To learn more about Bedford 2020 and our programs, visit our web site, Bedford 2020.org. Together, we are taking steps that are making a difference in Bedford!
