FREP Membership Meeting and Program
May 11 @ 1:00 pm
Program: Regional Climate Action Plan & Local Communities
Presenters: Edith Makra, Metropolitan Mayors Caucus; Geneva Mayor Ken Burns; Batavia Alderwoman Abby Beck
|The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus developed the 2021 Climate Action Plan for the Chicago Region (CAP) to empower local governments to respond to the climate crisis by working strategically and working together. From decarbonizing energy and transportation to sustaining landscapes that optimize ecosystem services and support biodiversity, the CAP emphasizes local leadership as integral in accelerating sustainable and equitable climate action.|
|The Global Covenant of Mayors and the European Union mentored the Mayors Caucus to undertake this pioneering regional plan. Now 33 local governments have formally supported the goals of the CAP and are working collaboratively to achieve them. This builds on a powerful network of 147 municipalities and 4 counties that have been working towards the consensus sustainability goals of the Greenest Region Compact since 2016. Join us for a conversation about the Climate Action Plan for the Chicago Region and the Greenest Region Compact and consider its impact at global, regional, and local level.|
Alderwoman Beck will share the number of activities taking place in the City of Batavia.
