Local governments play a crucial role in addressing the intersection of climate change and public health within their communities. As frontline responders, they are tasked with implementing policies and initiatives to mitigate climate-related health risks and build local resilience to various hazards and challenges. Join us for a discussion with Spokane WA, Avon CO, and the Atlantic Council to learn how local governments tackle wildfire-caused air pollution, extreme heat, and the climate-health nexus. 

Our speakers include: Sarah Nuss, Director of Emergency Management, City of Spokane; Charlotte Lin, Sustainability Coordinator, Town of Avon; and Owen Gow, Deputy Director, Extreme Heat Initiative, Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center (Atlantic Council)
