12/7 P2PLA Quarterly Meeting Recap
Posted by Anna Van on Tuesday, December 19th, 2017
On December 7th, Climate Resolve hosted the first Path to Positive Los Angeles (P2PLA) Quarterly Meeting. The convening included participants from various sectors of the community — health, local government, business, and faith. This allowed for a fruitful discussion and networking opportunity across sectors, as participants shared their experiences on implementing climate solutions in their work.
Our guest speaker, Dr. Elizabeth Rhoades from the LA County Department of Public Health, presented on the nexus between public health and climate change. Dr. Rhoades provided attendees with an exclusive preview of the department’s Urban Heat Island Reduction Plan — the County’s comprehensive strategy to alleviate health issues triggered by climate change. One element of the strategy includes installing cool roofs and implementing cool streets, two initiatives that the City of LA has already been implementing with the key support of Climate Resolve.
Climate Resolve’s Kristina von Hoffmann presented a climate communications training, giving participants tips from ecoAmerica’s “15 Steps” and “Let’s Talk Climate” guides. The training focused on research-based methods for starting conversations on climate impacts and solutions within the community.
Thank you to all participants (both in-person and through webinar) for joining us in successfully closing off this quarter. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to help us improve your experience for next time! We hope you can join us at our next Quarterly Meeting in February 2018.
