BAAQMD is hosting a webinar that will “highlight the importance of centering equity in climate planning.” Seems like a good sign — and a chance to weigh in on what that means.
The BAAQMD announcement says the webinar will be “an opportunity to learn about how the City of East Palo Alto and the City of Oakland incorporated equity in developing their Climate Action Plans, with a focus on lessons learned and challenges.”
Presenters will discuss “their respective city’s conceptualization of equity, the community engagement methods utilized, and the policies that were developed as a result of community input and equity considerations. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear how others have incorporated equity within their climate action planning, and also to network, discuss with neighboring municipalities, and gain an understanding of different approaches to plan for more just and sustainable communities for all.”
