Indiana University's Resilience Cohort
2020 Planning for Action
Richmond is one of 12 cities selected to participate in the next phase of Indiana University's Environmental Resilience Institute, the 2020 Resilience Cohort: Planning for Action. This work builds on the 2019 Resilience Cohort, which developed the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory.
Participation in the 2020 Resilience Cohort: Planning for Action will provide Richmond with the opportunity to analyze the results of our community greenhouse gas inventory and develop a climate action plan. Richmond will receive support from the Environmental Resilience Institute, ICLEI USA, and have the opportunity to apply for a 10-week summer intern through Sustain IU’s Indiana Sustainability Development Program to boost staff capacity for the project.
Participation has a few requirements:
- The $300 ICLEI fee will be covered by the Environmental Sustainability Commission's "Cans for Cash" Initiative.
- The Department of Infrastructure and Development's Planning Staff will support the project as required.
- An intern, either from IU or a local educational institution, will be supported and mentored by both Commission members and City Staff.
