New sessions you won’t want to miss
Engaging business in climate action
In order to reach community net-zero, resilience, and sustainability goals, local governments and local businesses must work together. Join us for an insightful session where local businesses, non-profits, and city representatives will discuss the crucial role of city-business collaboration in building net-zero, resilient, and sustainable communities.
Nature conservation and climate action
Cities and regions have a leading role to play when it comes to taking action to combat climate change and biodiversity loss. Join this session to hear from conservationists and municipal staff from around the country as they explore the direct linkages and opportunities to bring together conservation and climate action.
Show me the money: Funding your Climate Action Plan
Financing climate action is frequently cited as a barrier to implementation. Accessing reliable, dedicated, and long-term funding for both mitigation and adaptation action is crucial for local governments to implement actions at the scale and pace required. Learn about various funding approaches, barriers and opportunities for each.
Is it working? Using data and indicators to measure progress on climate action
Many communities are in the process of implementing climate actions. But are they working? A rigorous approach is needed to evaluate progress, support decision-making, course correct when needed, and ultimately achieve the desired outcomes. This engaging session will explore the importance of data and indicators to support implementation.
