Heidi oversees Pennsylvania's Local Government Climate Action Assistance Program, which is in its first year of implementation. The program partners with PA universities & colleges to “match a student with each participating local government, so they can be assisted in the process of developing their GHG inventories and CAPs.” The students work in partnership with DEP and ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability to guide a group of Pennsylvania local governments in completing a greenhouse gas inventory and subsequently developing a climate action plan.
In her keynote, Heidi will talk about the inaugural year of the program and how it is an excellent partnership model. She’ll explain why the program came to be, how it is shaped, and provide an update on its progress to date. Directly following the keynote, she hopes to hear from the audience on how to grow and improve the program. Heidi will be participating in the afternoon sessions as well, where participants will be able to gain further understanding of the program.
