Join Green Umbrella for the first Working Group Feedback Sessions for our Regional Climate Collaborative—a network that will support regional governments, organizations, and their communities to design and implement equitable climate solutions across Greater Cincinnati.
Working Group sessions are open to the public and will be held virtually via Zoom. Anyone can join any of the following groups listed in bold below. Please use the individual registration links highlighted in green for whichever working group(s) you are interested in joining. You must register for access to the meeting Zoom link.
**Each session has two dates/times shown. Both will feature the same content for each working group, so you only need to attend one. We're offering multiple to accommodate different schedules.**
Building Local Capacity Working Group: how we can increase local government staff capacity to act on climate; implement equitable climate plans, projects programs, and policies; and create workforce opportunities for the next generation of climate professionals -- including a fellowship program for local governments
Community Listening and Engagement Working Group: how we can center community voice, experience, and expertise in climate plans, projects, programs, and policies -- especially communities of color, low-income community members, youth, and the elderly
Elected Officials Working Group: how we build political will among electeds and those running for office, and support efforts at the local to state level
Regional Resources and Outreach Working Group: how we can raise awareness of climate impacts and solutions, and develop resources to accelerate action across the region -- including funding and a Regional Climate Action Playbook
About the Regional Climate Collaborative
Through our Climate Policy program, Green Umbrella is dedicated to working with regional local governments and their communities to kickstart and accelerate climate action in Greater Cincinnati. Regional Climate Collaboratives are a proven model that help communities share best practices, align local initiatives, develop opportunities for regional collaboration, and help secure funding and technical assistance to collectively address climate impacts. With this launch, Greater Cincinnati joins more than 30 other Regional Climate Collaboratives currently working to improve the quality of life in communities, resilience of infrastructure, and predictability of budgets. Green Umbrella’s Climate Policy team will act as the primary facilitator of this ongoing program and will work directly with governments, organizations, and other institutions who join as members.
