Communities in Michigan are developing Climate Action Plans (CAPs), in which they assess the best ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that destabilize the global climate and plan ahead so they are ready to protect citizens from the effects of climate change. The city of Kalamazoo is in the process of revising its master plan and will incorporate climate action into the new plan to ensure that our community is a safe, healthy, and sustainable community for all residents.

On March 29, there will be a public event to discuss how climate change will affect people in the Kalamazoo area and what actions our city agencies and local people can take to make our community “climate ready.” Experts from cities in Michigan that already have Climate Action Plans will share information about how to develop and implement an effective CAP. Kalamazoo city leaders and planners will attend the event to explain what they are already doing in our city, listen to ideas from community members, and discuss how the community can participate in development and implementation of a Kalamazoo Climate Action Plan.

Please join us for this discussion and learn how we can all contribute to local climate action.

Sponsored by: Hope for Creation, the WMU Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and the City of Kalamazoo Community Planning and Development Department.
