How to Leverage a Sustainability Dashboard to Drive Action
Thu, Jun 2, 2016 2-3pm EDT

Local communities are investing more resources in sustainability and climate efforts, spending years and hundreds of thousands of dollars developing intricate plans that they release with tremendous fanfare. But then what? The stakes are high for these programs to show results and command ongoing investment.

This free, 1-hour webinar will provide an overview of the process the City of Cleveland went through to develop their dashboard and the results to date and discuss opportunities to leverage a sustainability dashboard to not only meet accountability and transparency expectations, but to take it to the next level by actually engaging community members to take action and be part of the solution.

This webinar will feature Jenita McGowan, chief of sustainability for the City of Cleveland and Kim Lundgren, ENV SP, founder and CEO of Kim Lundgren Associates, Inc., who developed the first climate action plan in Massachusetts and one of the first municipal climate adaptation plans in the country. Kim has spent the last 15 years working with local governments around the country to design, secure funding for, and implement sustainability programs focused on climate change adaptation and mitigation.

As Chief of Sustainability, Jenita McGowan is responsible for advising the city on policies related to sustainability and the oversight of the Office of Sustainability; leading the coordination of Sustainable Cleveland 2019 to develop new strategies that allow Cleveland to use sustainability as an innovation engine for economic growth, and reducing the city’s ecological footprint with solutions that also save money.
