Learn how the city is working to redesign systems at the root of climate change.
How is Boulder addressing the climate crisis? What does a climate resilient future look like? Answering these big-picture questions requires ongoing conversations between the City of Boulder and the people it serves.
Connecting With the People We Serve
To this end, the city is hosting three virtual information sessions this summer, each with the goal of deepening the community’s familiarity with city climate work and inspiring collective action. Sessions will be led by staff from the city’s Climate Initiatives Department and will feature stories from the broader community.
“Planning for a climate resilient future requires tackling challenges and creating solutions in an integrated, inclusive and forward-looking manner,” said Interim Director of Climate Initiatives Jonathan Koehn. “As the dire warnings from climate science grow more severe, the City of Boulder is committed to a new chapter of climate planning. These sessions will focus on how the city is working to redesign systems at the root of climate change.”
