What’s all this I Hear about Sustainability, Resilience, and Climate Change?
What’s all this I Hear about Sustainability, Resilience, and Climate Change? Initiatives at the State-Level, National APA, and in the Divisions
Date and Time: Wednesday, June 16th at 3pm CT
Webinar Description: APA National is preparing to launch a specialized Certificate Maintenance (CM) credit, which will focus initially on sustainability and resilience. The Sustainable Communities and the Environment, Natural Resources, and Energy divisions have been working to explore local needs related to sustainability and develop guidance and materials that will be made available through KnowledgeBase. APA has recently released several related guide documents as well. Although some information about APA initiatives has been made available at the chapter and local-planner levels, we believe more outreach and information would be beneficial.
This session proposal is one method we are using to provide outreach. This session includes:
- A presentation on current APA initiatives
- A discussion of two state programs: one in Massachusetts and the other in Alaska
- A virtual workshop with breakouts that uses a SWOT-style analysis to breakdown available sustainability tools and what improvement is needed for some key sustainability topics
