Denver Regional Climate Plan Workshop

When:
October 9th - 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
October 10th - 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
 
Where:
DRCOG - 1001 17th Street, Denver
1st Floor Conference Rooms
 
 
Local governments across the DRCOG region are coming together to develop a Regional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory, climate action plan, and vulnerability assessment.  While a number of individual local governments have robust inventory and planning documents and processes in place, this is the first comprehensive Regional plan which will focus on high-impact climate actions that are best addressed at a regional scale.  
 
The development of the plan is supported by the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM), a global initiative focused on mobilizing and supporting climate change leadership and action at the local level. 
 
This 1.5 day workshop will be the introduction session to the Project, the GCoM Common Reporting Framework, and the regional context for climate action and adaptation planning.

  • Chris Rhie: Certified Energy Manager, EcoDistricts Accredited Professional, Envision Sustainability Professional - BuroHappold Engineering
  • Ryan Glancy: Chartered Energy Engineer (EI, UK) and Chartered Energy Manager (AEE, USA) - International Urban Cooperation, North America
