Special Edition: Our Climate Future - Week 1

Hello,

We’re looking for community members to brainstorm strategies to achieve our community’s goals for an equitable, resilient climate future that is prosperous for all.

Over the next nine weeks, you’ll be receiving weekly special edition newsletters with ways to share your thoughts on how our community can achieve our goals and priorities. Each week we will focus on a new priority, such as affordable housing, clean air, water, healthy economy and healthy natural environment.

Week 1 - Affordable Housing and Job Opportunities / Healthy Economy

About Our Climate Future

Our Climate Future (OCF) is the City of Fort Collins’ effort to update three community environmental plans: Fort Collins’ Energy Policy, the Road to Zero Waste Plan, and the Climate Action Plan. This process centers on co-creating equitable solutions with our community, leveraging collective action to respond to community priorities and achieving the goals set forth in the three plans. We’re doing this by centering equity and leading with race. By elevating voices of community members who have been historically underrepresented in past City planning processes, we are building a more resilient and sustainable future that benefits all.
