Local and Regional Options for Energy and Climate Change Resiliency
Friday, September 13, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
The conference responds to the growing interest in energy and climate change resiliency, with a particular focus on local and regional based solutions. We will explore complementary local and state goals for communities that are approaching resiliency through energy innovations and as climate smart communities. The event will highlight energy education resources, foster community-based energy planning and decision-making, stimulate strategic thinking about various options, and will motivate communities to take actions.
The conference is intended for local municipal and elected officials, planners, environment and conservation advisory council members, planning board members, Cooperative Extension educators, community leaders, and consultants who work with municipalities on these issues.
Attending this forum may qualify towards four hours of New York State-required municipal training credit. Certificates will be available at the end of the session.
Registration fee of $25 includes meals for the day.
