  • Help update the Cleveland Climate Action Plan, which incorporates the topics of: Energy, Water and Land Use, Community Engagement, Waste, and Transportation. Specifically, how can we accelerate progress in climate action that also advances equitable outcomes in health, access to green jobs, resiliency, and more?
