Green Bag Lunch Series: “Cleveland Climate Action Plan & Climate Ambassadors Working Together”

Join the Case Western Reserve University Office for Sustainability and the City of Cleveland Mayor’s Office of Sustainability for the next Green Bag Lunch Series event to learn more about Cleveland’s Climate Action Plan and their partnership with Cleveland Neighborhood Progress (CNP).

The event will take place Wednesday, Feb. 21, from noon to 1 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center Senior Classroom (Room 134).

Participants will learn about the City of Cleveland’s Climate Action Plan as well as CNP’s Climate Ambassadors. The ambassadors 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.

Those attending will be encouraged to get engaged through neighborhood workshops on health, community and climate action to inform the updated Climate Action Plan.

Speakers will be:

  • Bianca Butts, climate resilience and sustainability manager at CNP, who will speak about the Climate Ambassadors Program;
  • Veronica Walton, a climate ambassador, who will speak about her experience and the work being done in Cleveland; and
  • Erika Meschkat, sustainability manager at the City of Cleveland, who will give an update on the City’s Climate Action Plan progress.

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

Registration is available online.
