Climate Resolution Priorities
The DPS Board of Education unanimously passed the agreed upon climate policy, setting the district on a path to develop a comprehensive Climate Action Plan. The plan uses the student’s proposed climate goals from the City of Denver and the State of Colorado as guides and has a strong focus on environmental justice.
Climate Action End Statement 1.6: DPS shall be a national leader in establishing an organizational culture anchored in sustainability, climate action, and environmental justice in both the conservation of natural resources and in minimizing the carbon footprint of DPS’ practices.
DPS Sustainability Team
Erin Ahlholm (she/her)
Erin makes the Sustainability Team run like a well-oiled machine and takes pride in handling the nitty-gritty paperwork, documentation, and procedures for the team. She has always been passionate about making the world a better place for people and our planet. With a bachelor’s in nutrition and food science and master’s in environmental management, she hopes to bring more attention to the interplay between human health and environmental sustainability. When she’s not tabbing through spreadsheets, you can catch her shredding the slopes on her treasured snowboard, scouring a thrift shop for hidden gems, or partaking in her favorite pastime – shamelessly falling asleep before 10 p.m.
Kelly Moses (he/him)
Kelly collaborates with DPS school communities to put passion for sustainability into action. He connects schools with programs and resources to help build a district-wide culture of environmental stewardship that extends to all students and staff. He is passionate about community-led action that deepens connection across groups through a shared vision. After graduating with a bachelor’s in international studies and African language, he made the move from New York to Colorado for the year-round sunshine. In his free time, Kelly enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, watching NBA basketball, and sipping coffee between bites of something sweet.
Lindsay Weber (she/her)
Lindsay turns complex data into compelling and engaging stories to inform sustainable decisions. She earned a master’s degree in environmental studies, a graduate certificate in marketing communications, and a bachelor’s degree in earth & planetary sciences. When she’s not looking bleary-eyed at a spreadsheet, she can be found on a soccer field, in a softball dugout, at a new restaurant, or in the mountains with her “pack.” She will ask to pet your dog.
