Bard CEP Alumna Libby Murphy will be speaking at this conference.
The conference responds to the growing interest in energy and climate change resiliency with a particular focus on local and regional based solutions. We will explore complementary local and state goals for communities that are approaching resiliency through energy innovations and as climate smart communities. The event will highlight energy education resources, foster community-based energy planning and decision-making, stimulate strategic thinking about various options, and will motivate communities to take actions.
The conference is intended for local municipal and elected officials, planners, environment and conservation advisory council members, planning board members, Cooperative Extension educators, community leaders, and consultants who work with municipalities on these issues.
