MRSC Webinar: Developing a Local Climate Action Strategy: Approaches for Washington Local Governments
Monday, November 15, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM PDT
Category: External Event

Webinar Overview

This is the first of three webinars in MRSC’s Local Climate Response Project training series. In this webinar, we will take a closer look at potential tools and approaches for local climate action in Washington State, building off the experiences of our presenters and the planning process that culminated in the adoption of the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan earlier this year.

Educational Objectives

Presenters will provide insights from their involvement with the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan, a robust regional climate action plan that includes Thurston County and the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater. They will describe the community planning process, highlight key features of the plan (including greenhouse gas reduction strategies specific to the building sector), and offer lessons learned to other jurisdictions interested in developing a local climate response. Deepa Sivarajan from Climate Solutions will conclude by sharing tools available to local governments in their climate action efforts and some innovative approaches being used around Washington State. 

Credits: 1.5 hours CM credit; Cost: Free
