It’s 2023 (5783). Does your community have a climate action plan yet? How about carbon reduction goals?  You may have attended one of JCAN-MA’s many trainings over the years which laid out the basics to get a process rolling. Whether you have or not, the next steps are about developing buy-in for your ideas.

In this interactive session, Jennifer Haugh will offer insights on the elements of successful volunteer efforts and specifically the steps to a stakeholder-engaged climate action planning process. There will be time for Q&A and discussion, facilitated by Eric Grunebaum.
