Urban areas are responsible for 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions and cities are increasingly seen as the place where the solutions to climate change will be found. Chicago developed its Climate Action Plan in 2007 to outline the mitigation and climate readiness goals for the city. It has since been recognized as one of the leading plans in the country because of its scientific rigor, community involvement, and actionable targets.
Moving from plan to action has involved thousands of people, many different sources of support, and a set of innovative approaches. This webinar will provide information about:
- The process for creating the Chicago Climate Action Plan
- How Chicago moved from plans to action
- Accomplishments and next steps
