The Congress of Neighboring Communities (CONNECT) brings together the City of Pittsburgh and 35+ neighboring local governments to innovate shared effective and equitable public policy solutions and service delivery through community engaged research. Climate change is one of CONNECT’s many public policy issues that requires coordination among municipalities – as well as community engaged research and collaboration to address successfully. Workshop will take attendees through the journey of priming climate action in CONNECT, surveying our residents priorities, working with university faculty, public and private utilities, nonprofits and government to advance and fund opportunities across municipal borders, to working on passing a regional CONNECT Climate Action Plan that helps our members collectively address climate change in their communities. This workshop will also explain CONNECT's evolution, governance and networked leadership structure that facilitates so many governments of varying sizes and capacity to resolve to learn and grow together, all powered by research and resources both by member representatives and the University of Pittsburgh.
