Community members are encouraged to cast their votes for Evanston in the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) 2016 “We Love Cities” campaign.
In tandem with the WWF’s Earth Hour City Challenge, the “We Love Cities” campaign allows people across the world to express support for sustainable urban development by voting for selected Earth Hour City Challenge finalist cities and posting improvement suggestions. Evanston has been selected as a finalist to represent the United States in the Earth Hour City Challenge, along with Burlington, Vermont and Boulder, Colorado. Last year, Evanston edged Cleveland and Seattle to become the U.S. Earth Hour City Capital.
