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.

Phoebe Romero, City of Austin, Office of Sustainability
Katy Evans, City of Dallas, Office of Environmental Quality and Sustainability
Lara Cottingham, City of Houston, Administration & Regulatory Affairs Department 
Doug Melnick, City of San Antonio, Office of Sustainability
