Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Open to ClimateActionWR Residential, Transportation, Workplaces (ICI) and Management Committee Members. Limited Outside Availability

Time: 3:00-5:00pm


Nothing happens in a bubble, challenges that impact the Transportation Sector are likely mirrored in the Residential or Workplace Sectors as well. Armed with the insights from each sector specific session, we offer Committee members an opportunity to share the major challenges of their sectors and work on plans to collaborate across sectors over the next year.

Join us over cocktails, for a lively and interactive workshop and opportunity to network with other committee members and the ClimateActionWR Management Committee. Focused on identifying areas for cross-sector collaboration, this session will offer participants an opportunity to hear what the challenges other sectors are facing, and time to identify areas the committee could collaborate to overcome those challenges over the next year.
