Maintaining Sustainability Staff: Considerations for Local Governments Managing Concurrent Crises
Local government decision-makers are grappling with extreme budgetary impacts and difficult spending decisions in the wake of a year of unprecedented crises. This paper, produced by the Local Government Commission through the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC), now known as the California Climate & Energy Collaborative (CCEC), offers insights into how local governments that maintain sustainability staff can more effectively improve financial conditions and build long-term economic, social, and environmental resilience.
Join us for CCEC’s first Reading Roundtable on the Maintaining Sustainability Staff report!
CCEC Reading Roundtable 1: Maintaining Sustainability Staff
Apr 29, 2021 2:30 – 3:30 PM PT
The California Climate and Energy Collaborative (CCEC) hopes the “Maintaining Sustainability Staff” report is useful to you as you navigate your energy and climate work amid the pandemic and other disruptions in your community. In these challenging times, professionals in your position need more support than ever. We plan to run a piece under the “Coping with Crises” series each quarter in CURRENTS, and follow each with an opportunity to dig in deeper with facilitated reflection among peers. We invite you to join other California local government energy and climate practitioners for the first interactive CCEC Reading Roundtable on April 29, @ 2:30-3:30pm, where we will discuss your experiences attempting to maintain sustainability staff in difficult times. Think of it like a work-related book club, with far less time commitment required! All registrants will receive a free paper copy of the report to follow along.
