Getting to Net-Zero: Virtual Municipal Climate Budgeting Workshop

Tuesday December 5, 2023 | 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST | Online

Climate budgeting is a new and emerging trend in the municipal climate space that could help achieve net-zero resiliency goals. But, what exactly is it and how can this tool help advance our climate goals? In this interactive virtual workshop, participants learned about climate budgeting and contemplated how it could advance their community’s climate objectives through interactive exercises.
