SALT LAKE CITY, April 29 (UPI) -- Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is teaming up with Hollywood super star Robert Redford in a project to fight global warming.

The pair plans to set up an environmental congress where local officials from across the United States can learn what they can do to stave off global warming, the Deseret Morning News reported Friday.

The congress will be called the Sundance Summit and open in July. Anderson, Redford staff members and the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives are working on the details.

Among the proposals, local governments will be urged to use alternative fuels to not only save money but reduce unfriendly emissions. In Salt Lake City, the simple switch to energy-saving bulbs in the city has netted great cost savings, which the city used to purchase clean wind power, the report said.

Current plans call for the Sundance Summit to spend one day in Salt Lake City before moving to Sundance, nestled in the Wasatch Mountains in Provo Canyon.
