To help reduce the impact of climate change, municipalities across the country are increasingly turning to climate action plans to meet emissions reduction goals. But developing and implementing a strategic and comprehensive road map can be a complex process. What’s the best way to get started and how do you maintain momentum?
In this roundtable discussion hosted by Greg Sponseller, Energy and Sustainability Analyst with the City of Raleigh, you and a small group of peers from across the country will have the opportunity to discuss climate action plans for both municipal operations and the entire community.
No formal plan in place? No problem! Join the conversation to discuss sustainable trends (i.e., engagement, reporting and tracking success), ideas and problem-solving resources. Find out how your peers are engaging stakeholders to gain support for their climate action plans. And learn how climate action plans can not only help you achieve emissions reduction but also address equity, environmental justice and community resilience goals.
