Community invited to help with UW-Stevens Point’s Climate Action and Resilience Plan

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is seeking the perspectives of community members as it develops a plan to respond to environmental and social pressures related to climate change.
 
The public is invited to UW-Stevens Point’s Community Resilience Assessment session from 4-5:45 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, at Portage County Library’s Pinery Room. Working with members of the university’s Office of Sustainability, attendees will identify how the campus and community are positioned to deal with hazards relating to environmental and climate change.
 
This input into the university’s Climate Action and Resilience Plan will help identify strengths and weaknesses and an understanding of the campus and community’s current capacity for resilience.
 
“Resilience is the ability of a system or community to survive disruption, adapt and flourish in the face of change,” said Michelle Gullickson, a research assistant in the Office of Sustainability. “Our goal is to plan for a more resilient and climate-responsible future.”
 
UW-Stevens Point is working with a national organization, Second Nature, to create its Climate Action and Resilience Plan. Building from a 2007 pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, UW-Stevens Point’s multi-year planning process will align its carbon neutrality plan with a lens towards campus resilience, adaptation and mitigation.
