On Tuesday, November 15th at noon, we hosted a webinar to for local elected officials and their staff to learn from one of our region’s most successful local government coalitions. CONNECT, or the “Congress of Neighboring Communities” in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania encompasses 40 municipalities which have come together to create a shared vision of climate action for the region.
This exciting webinar discussed CONNECT’s network-wide Climate Action Plan which includes the first inventory of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from each member’s community-wide activities, establishes a feasible emissions reduction target, and outlines potential actions identified by stakeholders to achieve our emissions reduction, equity, and resilience goals.
This event highlighted the geographic and demographic diversity of their network that includes high-capacity, early adopter, and low-income communities.
