Climate action planning is starting NOW in the City of La Crosse. A team of community members will meet monthly, and there will be many opportunities for education of and participation by community members. This plan is the result of a resolution the city passed in 2019 committing to reducing carbon emissions to zero and transitioning energy to 100% renewable energy community-wide by 2050.
What exactly IS a climate action plan? Why should the city and other groups - businesses, organizations, schools, nonprofits - make one? What is involved in making a climate action plan? What are the expected outcomes?
You will have two (at least) opportunities to learn about this process and how YOU can be involved so we end with strong, comprehensive, meaningful goals and plans to meet them.
On Tuesday, January 25 at 7 p.m. the Coulee Region Sierra Club will host an online program with Ted Redmond, co-founder of paleBLUEdot llc the consulting firm working with the city on its plan. Register for access at tinyurl.com/CRSC012522
