Description

Note: The official registration date has passed. You may still register for the workshop, however we can not guarantee that we will have printed nametags, etc available for late registrants.

Join us to hear from USEPA Climate Showcase Communities Grantees who have been piloting successful greenhouse gas mitigation projects at this free, 1-day workshop. Attendees of the workshop will hear directly from the government staff who designed and implemented these programs, and learn about best practices, tools, and resources that they can use to catalyze similar action in their own community. Attendees will also have the opportunity to talk informally with program representatives during café style discussions.

Note: Priority for registration will be given to staff from local and tribal governments and local/tribal associations.
