CELC Webinar: Equity in Climate Planning
Thursday, July 23, 9-10 AM CST
Climate change impacts including displacement, poor air quality, and heat island effect, disproportionately impacts low-income families and communities of color. Low-income households spend on average 10% on energy costs compared to 2% for non-low-income (TEPRI). Equity and climate are inextricably linked.
Cities across Texas are developing and implementing climate action plans to tackle the mounting climate crisis. Join us to learn how equity shaped and guided climate plans and implementation strategies in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.
