Education, outreach, and engagement are critical to preparing communities for the effects of climate change. The Village's Climate Smart Community Task Force has created a Public Engagement and Education team which has developed a Public Outreach and Engagement Plan. The Plan documents Village efforts to engage the public, as well as local and regional partners, in taking steps to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Through collaboration with traditional and nontraditional stakeholder groups, the team hopes to identify innovative ways to to reduce GHG emissions and build community cohesion and resilience. The achievements by the Village in relation to the plan can be found HERE.
