Cumberland County Climate Action Planning Event Dec. 8 - Municipal Rules - Where Real Action Happens

Cumberland Conservation Collaborative and its partners will hold a Cumberland County Climate Action Planning online event December 8 on Municipal Rules - Where Real Action Happens from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Changing climate has caused and will continue to cause impacts to public health, infrastructure, emergency services, and major economic contributors like agriculture, tourism, and recreation. 

This means more flooding, more heat and respiratory deaths, increased disease and pests, and disruptions to our food and agricultural systems. 

There is value in taking action and preparing at the local and state levels. How does local climate action planning happen? 

The Borough of Carlisle and the borough’s Climate Action Commission will be used as an example of how local governments and citizens can initiate climate action planning. 

The speakers will include--

-- Joel Hicks, Carlisle Climate Action Commission Chair; 

-- Tony Underwood, CAC Pathways and Analysis Team Lead; 

-- Sara Markowitz, CAC Community Engagement Team Lead; 

-- Mohammed Badissey, CAC Projects and Estimates Team Lead; and 

-- Karla Farrell, CAC Zoning Team Lead. 

The event will include a question and answer session.

This event is the second of three and is coordinated by Carlisle Borough in collaboration with community partners including the Cumberland Conservation Collaborative, South Mountain Partnership, the Center for Land Use and Sustainability at Shippensburg University, the Center for Sustainability Education at Dickinson College, Cumberland County Planning Department, and Yellow Breeches Watershed Association.
