News from CT Roundtable on Climate and Jobs
by John Humphries, Organizer, CT Roundtable
We had a successful first round of Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3) stakeholder events and we are now preparing for our spring Roundtable gathering.
GC3 Stakeholder Events – Round 1
On May 5, more than 175 people participated in simultaneous stakeholder events organized by the Governor’s Council on Climate Change at seven locations across the state. You can access the handouts, presentation slides, a video of the event, and some great photos on our website, http://www.ctclimateandjobs.org.
The second round will happen in late July and will provide an opportunity to evaluate some preliminary scenarios for achieving the state’s climate goals. More details coming soon!
June 7 – Roundtable Gathering
Join us for our statewide gathering on June 7 when we will explore the intersection between the GC3 climate action planning and the state’s Comprehensive Energy Strategy (being updated this year). We seek to develop points of agreement and shared strategies for influencing these two state processes to ensure an aggressive approach to climate protection that creates local jobs and addresses the needs for climate justice.
