In April of this year, Mayor Garcetti announced a refresh of LA’s sustainability pLAn, LA’s Green New Deal, to address the climate crisis. What can neighborhood councils do to support LA’s Green New Deal at the hyperlocal level while increasing civic engagement? We will talk about how to create actionable goals that are aligned with the Green New Deal and will also provide participants with tools for effecting change in urban forestry, decarbonizing buildings, addressing extreme heat, and more!
This workshop is part of the Congress of Neighborhoods, which will be held all day Saturday, September 28 at City Hall, 200 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. (The entrance is on Main Street.) Our workshop will be from 1:00 to 2:30.
Please be sure to register for the Congress at NCCongressLA.com. Registration will likely close before Saturday.
