Event description

Description

Join the CWRU Office for Sustainability and the City of Cleveland, Mayor’s Office of Sustainability to learn more about Cleveland's Climate Action Plan and their partnership with Cleveland Neighborhood Progress (CNP). CNP has developed an active cohort of resident Climate Ambassadors to authentically engage with their neighborhoods through Resilient Cleveland, an initiative to improve the quality of life for residents across the City who are more vulnerable to the risks of a changing climate. Participants will be encouraged to get engaged through neighborhood workshops on health, community and climate action to inform the updated Climate Action Plan.

Speakers will include:

  • Bianca Butts, Climate Resilience and Sustainability Manager at CNP, will speak about the Climate Ambassadors Program
  • Veronica Walton, a Climate Ambassador, will speak about their experience and the work being done in Cleveland.
  • Erika Meschkat, Sustainability Manager at the City of Cleveland, will give an update on the City’s Climate Action Plan progress

CWRU Office for Sustainability will provide desserts and coffee. Those attending are encouraged to bring their lunch to eat during the presentation.

After the event, this presentation and past Green Bag Lunch large screen presentations are available on the CWRU Office for Sustainability's website.
