Planners Training Service Two-Day Workshop
Planning for Climate Change: Adaptation and Mitigation
Seattle • June 11–12, 2013
Advanced Training for Practicing Planners
Like the weather, climate change is something everyone talks about. But what can you really do about it?
Find out at this forward-looking workshop. You'll learn what the feds are doing, what the states are doing, and what's up to you. You'll get the tools to perform a "cool planning" audit and create a climate action plan for your community. You'll share ideas with the presenters and your peers at the workshop. And more importantly, you'll come away ready to put the talk into action.
Change is in the air. Steer your community toward a cooler future.
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is a cosponsor of the Planners Training Service workshops.
You'll learn about:
- Performing a "cool planning" audit to assess your community's needs and opportunities
- Developing climate mitigation and adaptation plans as part of a climate action plan
- Integrating a climate action plan with your comprehensive plan and hazard mitigation plan
- Reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gases through effective land-use and transportation planning
This agenda is subject to change. Workshop registrants will receive the final agenda after registration closes.
