Punch List
Created 21 Oct 2021
  1. Connect: Invite women interested in, or working on sustainability to join me for a monthly potluck.
  2. Collaborate: Collaborate with JEDI focused individuals and/or groups on developing climate action materials, to help ensure just, equitable and inclusive actions.
  3. Co-create: Develop a Personal Climate Action Plan (PCAP) to clearly calculate, and reduce my carbon foot print by 50% every decade. Share with others to seek feedback on process, as well as encourage them to do the same (or simply share this website).
  4. Share: By 2023, share or rent a room in my home by 2023, so we can have 3 instead of 2 people using much of the same space, utilities and resources.
  5. Electrify: Install a heat pump by 2023 or sooner.
  6. Build Relationships: Talk generously to the City Council about solutions for a healthy climate, which can be implemented at the local level. Do this at least 6 times in the next year.
  7. Empower: Invite and empower 3 to 7 people, or business owners to join me at City Council meetings on a semi-regular basis.
  8. Learn & Act: Do a personal waste audit in December, then call the companies I have the most garbage from, and ask that they upgrade to compostable, or circular packaging.
  9. Engage in Participative Leadership: Staring in 2022, offer to host talks and/or community conversations exploring personal, structural, and "glocal" solutions for a healthy climate. Share this site and my sustainability knowledge, as well as learn from others' emerging solutions and ideas.
  10. Love the Soil: Ask my grocery stores, and my favorite brands to carry Regenerative, Organic Certified products. Talk about the certification with those in my circles.

A punch list can be for an individual, family, community, company, or city.  It is the list of the actions you or a group will undertake and accomplish over a predetermined span of time—one month, one year, five years, or more. You can make different lists for different time periods—this week and this year for example.
