Indiana Cities take on climate change
Resilient Indiana is a collaborative project with and between Indiana cities ready to take on the challenge of climate change, and see it as an opportunity for green-sector jobs, infrastructure innovation, local food and energy production, community-building, and climate readiness.
Our goal is 20 Indiana communities engaged in climate resiliency by 2020.
ECI, in collaboration with the Environmental Resilience Institute formed a Resilience Cohort for municipalities interested in completing a greenhouse gas inventory. Over a dozen cities are participating in the 2019 cohort. We look forward to hearing the results of their greenhouse gas inventories!
Resilient Indiana emphasizes youth-led initiatives to work with engineers, planners, and elected officials to adopt Climate Recovery Resolutions at a local level. In 2017, three Indiana cities passed Climate Recovery Resolutions: Carmel, Lawrence and Indianapolis. In 2019, Goshen and South Bend passed youth-led resolutions.
An important component of our work with cities is our annual Climate Leadership Summit. Visit that page for more information. Below are some of the many mayors with whom we work on making Indiana a more just, peaceful and sustainable place.
