One Book Conversation: Routt County's Climate Action Plan

Monday, January 24, 2022 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
  • Virtual Event via Crowdcast
Replay now available! Learn about the Routt County Climate Action Plan and what difference can we make as a community.

Routt County Environmental Health Director Scott Cowman leads a community presentation and conversation about the Routt County Climate Action Plan. He'll walk us from the local Greenhouse Gas Study to development of the Climate Action Plan, to creation of the Collaborative Board and Work Groups, leading to a discussion about plan implementation and how people can get involved through strategic actions that make a difference.

Routt County’s Climate Action Plan is an actionable document that will guide our community towards implementing climate action solutions to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and enhance our community’s overall quality of life and long-term resiliency. The strategies within the Climate Action Plan have been divided into six sectors: Energy, Transportation, Land Use, Waste, Accountability, and Economics. The plan was recently finalized, and the strategies and actions included in it, if implemented successfully, are likely to lead to a 74% reduction in community greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.
