The Northwest Hills Council of Governments

NHCOG to Host Governor’s Council on Climate Change Stakeholder Event

The Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3) will hold a second round of stakeholder events on Tuesday, July 26th, 5:30pm-7:30pm (refreshments available at 5:00pm). RSVP at July 26 Registration

The primary/central location will be in Hartford, with 9 satellite locations across the state (from Goshen to Groton and from Norwalk to Killingly), including the NHCOG Office at 59 Torrington Road, Goshen. Participants at the satellite locations will view the presentation via video link and then engage in facilitated dialogue at the local level.

Nearly 200 people participated in Round 1 on May 5th (see photos, video and other information).

The GC3 is seeking input from stakeholders as it develops a set of strategies to achieve the state’s mandated goal of a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below 2001 levels by 2050.

Participants in the July stakeholder events will have an opportunity to learn about the initial results of the modeling scenarios, provide feedback to the GC3 members on the priorities incorporated within those scenarios, and engage in local dialogue about some of the policy implications of the initial results: Which activities should be prioritized for early implementation? What criteria should be used in identifying the communities/regions where we should focus limited resources in the short-term?

Please register online to receive detailed location information and background materials prior to the event, and to tell us which site you plan to attend.
