Sustainable Maryland is pleased to invite Maryland's municipal and county elected officials and staff, municipal Green Team members, and local advocates to attend the Leadership Training Workshop in Hagerstown, November 12 – Community Energy Efficiency: Meeting the Climate Deadline.
The Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland will host Sustainable Maryland's annual Leadership Training workshops on November 12, 2019. This training series fosters leadership skills to engage diverse stakeholders, reduce contention, and garner support for sustainability initiatives.
This year's workshop topic, COMMUNITY ENERGY EFFICIENCY: MEETING THE CLIMATE DEADLINE, will help communities identify and begin to develop and implement energy efficiency policies that will equitably reduce city-wide energy consumption to meet their own climate mitigation and resilience goals. The workshop will incorporate examples, stories and tools that will help communities to become more energy efficient, save money, decrease carbon pollution and fight climate change. As more and more cities get serious about climate action planning, energy efficiency is at the forefront, both nationally and at the state level. Learn about the benefits of energy efficiency; the policies and practices that can help reduce costs; funding sources and technical assistance available for increasing efficiency of local government operations; and examples of how to engage residents and to lead communities through this vital transformation for our collective future.
Date: Tuesday, November 12, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: University System of Maryland at Hagerstown
Fee: $35.00 (includes breakfast, lunch, program materials, free parking)
