On-Demand Webinar: Enhancing Social Equity in City Climate Action & Sustainability Planning

Based on a synthesis of expertise and analysis of local climate-action options and current research, we address: Why local climate action needs more urgency, not less. How the pandemic response creates opportunities and risks for local climate action. How socially vulnerable populations can benefit from purposeful responses to the pandemic and climate change.

The Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) in partnership with the Northeast Clean Energy Council (NECEC) tackle these pressing questions in our Energy of the Future webinar series.
