Speaker: Bruce Riordan, Climate All Star and Consultant
The LCEA has open meetings on the second Thursday of every month, featuring informative speakers on renewable energy, energy efficiency, and related efforts.
The next meeting of Alliance is September 10th at 6 pm and will
feature a special presentation from Climate All Star, Bruce Riordan of Elmwood Consulting. Bruce specializes in transportation and global warming and currently helps develop regional strategies with clients such as MTC, BAAQMD, BART, and Next Ten. Bruce will discuss a new inititiave from the Bay Area's Joint Policy Committee, Climate Bay Area, as well as regional approaches to funding sustainable climate action.
Climate Bay Area will function as an information clearinghouse. After studying and discussing the top climate barriers and opportunities in the region, members will bring this information (including options for action) back to their respective boards/management teams for review, discussion and policy direction. Where those directions identify common ground for action among two or more stakeholder groups, CBA will broker the partnerships needed to move ahead.
Also, the LCEA's newest member - Town Green, a group of dedicated 'green urbanists' who offer a comprehensive approach to sustainable community planning and urban design - will discuss their work on the Hayward and Martinez Climate Action Plans.
WHEN: September 10, 6-8 pm
WHERE: Central Historic Building, 436 14th St.
2nd Floor Conference Room, Oakland
(Just up the stairs from the 12th St. BART station)
