Fort Collins Climate Action Plan Update: Our Climate Future & Big Steps

Link visible for attendees

We'll receive an update from the City of Fort Collins on their updated climate action plan, Our Climate Future (OCF). OCF is a comprehensive plan to simultaneously address climate, energy and waste goals while improving our community’s equity and resilience. OCF articulates an unwavering commitment to mitigating and adapting to climate change with a people-first systems-approach. The plan will help guide the city towards their 2030 goal to reduce carbon emissions to 80% of its 2005 baseline.

Part of the OCF plan has been to identify a series of Big and Next Moves. Big Moves is the Our Climate Future way of describing the transformational outcomes which connect our specific goals for climate, energy and waste with the community’s definition of a sustainable Fort Collins. Next Moves are the specific strategies and tactics that lead to transformational outcomes of the Big Moves. Each Big Move has an associated set of Next Moves. The Next Moves are evaluated for their impact on goals, benefits and costs, potential results for improving equity and resilience.

More details to follow on location (in person or webinar), time, and speaker.
