Staunton residents got a chance to see how they could make their city cool Tuesday night.
A global warming discussion was held by the Shenandoah chapter of the Sierra Club at Mary Baldwin College.
The speakers urged Staunton to join the national Cool Cities Movement.
A 'cool city' focuses on energy efficiency, green vehicles and renewable energy.
Erik Curren, Sierra Club Vice-Chairman, says, "We'd like to not only live more cleanly and more efficiently in terms of energy, but we'd like to maybe contribute to some of the clean energy technology that's coming along. So I'm very excited that Staunton might be joining other progressive communities."
Staunton has already been making some changes to protect the environment.
