The City of Charlottesville has committed to including Equity as part of its Climate Action Plan and has partnered with the University of Virginia’s Institute for Engagement & Negotiation (IEN) to conduct this important conversation on equity for the City’s Climate Action Plan. This conversation around equity and will be an integral part of the overarching discussions for all the community engagement efforts. In addition, we hope a separate continuous group will form to assist the City through the longer-term planning process.
We would like to have a diversity of community voices contribute to the conversation about how to ensure that the City’s Climate Action Plan represents our goals for climate equity. In addition to direct invitations that have been sent out, other community members are invited to participate in this first important Equity in Climate Action conversation for the City of Charlottesville.
This Equity Conversation will be Monday, February 8 beginning at 4 pm and lasting until 6 pm. This meeting will be virtual via Zoom. Please RSVP if you would like to attend to Harrison Premen at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link and agenda.
