Alameda Climate Action Workshop
January 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Please join City staff for the second Community Input Session of Alameda’s Climate Action and Resiliency Plan. At Community Input Session #1, City staff recorded hundreds of ideas from community members on how Alameda can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and become more resilient and sustainable. While last workshop was about brainstorming ideas, this workshop is about prioritizing and fleshing out the ideas that were most popular from the last round. Everyone is welcome to this Community Input Session, regardless of whether you attended the last one and how much prior experience you have. The Facebook page for the event is here:https://www.facebook.com/events/576048262860834/.
After a brief introduction to the workshop, we will split into three breakout groups and discuss three main topics: greenhouse gas emissions, flooding and sea level rise, and other impacts of climate change. Each group will spend 45 minutes on each topic, then rotate to the next. Each breakout group session will begin with an update from City staff on the work that’s been done since the last Input Session and the potential strategies being considered. The remainder of the time will be spent gathering input on which strategies should be prioritized, how they can be improved, and any other considerations community members want to offer.
The workshop will be held at Alameda High School on January 26 from 9am-12pm, with sign-in beginning at 8:45am. Street parking is available on Walnut, and the high school parking lot on the Walnut side should be open. The workshop will begin in the cafeteria, which is close to the Walnut parking lot, but it’s a bit hard to navigate there so we will post signs at all entrances to the high school and have staff walking around to direct you to the correct room. For those who cannot make it in person, we will open a digital version of the workshop at the following link:https://www.opentownhall.com/7127.
