Launched in June 2012, the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs is an innovative partnership between the Interreligious Eco-Justice Network and the CT AFL-CIO that seeks to strengthen collaboration among Connecticut’s labor, environmental, and religious groups in advocating for public policies that address urgent concerns about climate change while creating good-paying jobs right here in our state.
During 2016, the Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3) is gathering input from stakeholders across the state, as part of its charge to develop a strategy/plan to meet the state’s mandated goal of an 80% reduction in GHG emissions below 2001 levels by the year 2050.
There is a stakeholder event right in our own backyard on Tuesday, July 26 at 5:30 in Goshen. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn about what is happening so far and to have a voice in future planning. It is being hosted by the Northwest Hills Council of Government.
To learn more about it go to : bit.ly/GC3-July26.
Jeremy Brecher, who serves on the steering committee of the Roundtable and lives in West Cornwall, is coordinating the Goshen event.
