Panelists Dr. Sabine O'Hara, Tammy Seale, and Adrienne Greve will discuss issues covered in "Climate Action Planning" - the most comprehensive book on the state of the art, science, and practice of local climate action planning. Published by Island Press, "Climate Action Planning" is designed to help planners, municipal staff and officials, citizens and others working at local levels to develop and implement plans to mitigate a community's greenhouse gas emissions and increase the resilience of communities against climate change impacts. This fully revised and expanded edition goes well beyond climate action plans to examine the mix of policy and planning instruments available to every community. Boswell, Greve, and Seale also look at process and communication: How does a community bring diverse voices to the table? What do recent examples and research tell us about successful communication strategies? Sponsored by Cadmus Group.
