Work Groups

At the Climate Forum, five interdisciplinary work groups met to discuss collaborative projects in key issue areas. A group champion and regional agency representative opened the session. To inspire the discussion, each group brainstormed newspaper headlines that would appear in 2016 if the group was successful in achieving their vision. Samples of these are listed below.

The groups will reconvene in September to report back on their progress in reducing emissions and obtaining funding for projects.

Contact us with comments or for details on the meeting locations. (Work groups are currently for city and county staff and executives.)
