Town of Cape Elizabeth Climate Action Workshop

November 30, 2023 -- 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Get involved with climate action in Cape Elizabeth! All those who live, work, go to school, own a business or property in town are encouraged to participate! At this workshop:

  • Learn how climate change is impacting the people and places in Cape Elizabeth
  • Have your concerns, priorities, experiences, and ideas heard as part of a Climate Action Plan process that’s being convened by the Town of Cape Elizabeth
  • Know what opportunities exist to stay involved in the future

What is a Climate Action Plan? It’s a plan to address impacts from climate change and build a more sustainable Cape Elizabeth. The Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) has been contracted to lead the Town of Cape Elizabeth through a Climate Action Planning process, providing support, guidance, and technical assistance to create a plan that is aligned with the State of Maine’s “Maine Won’t Wait” Climate Action Plan. Please join us to learn how you can make a difference in shaping the future of Cape Elizabeth!

This program will take place in the library’s Community Room. All are welcome!
