Climate Action Planning
Creating Low Carbon Resilient Communities
August 7, 2019
1:15 to 2:45 PM EDT

Island Press' Climate Action Planning co-authors Tammy Seale and Adrienne Greve will join us on August 7th to talk about new examples of cities approaching the challenge of climate change in creative and innovative ways—from rethinking transportation, to greening city buildings, to protecting against sea-level rise, to vulnerability assessments that help each community to identify their greatest risks and opportunities.

Climate Action Planning is the most comprehensive book on the state of the art, science, and practice of local climate action planning. It should be a first stop for any local government interested in addressing climate change.
