Inspiring Climate Action: A Fireside Chat with Chief Hoffer (webinar)

On March 26, the MMA will launch a “climate action” webinar series, which will explore how climate change impacts municipalities and address questions about how appointed and elected officials can take action.

Online registration is open for the first webinar in the series, which will feature a “fireside chat” between Massachusetts Climate Chief Melissa Hoffer and MMA Executive Director Adam Chapdelaine.

Hoffer and Chapdelaine will discuss the municipal role in addressing climate change and explore why climate action is so urgently needed at the local, state and federal levels. They will also highlight resources available to help communities as they prepare for and respond to climate threats.

The climate webinar series will continue throughout 2024, with more webinars to be announced later this spring. Additional details and registration links will be posted on the MMA website and emailed to members in the coming weeks.

Upcoming webinars include:
• “Inspiring Climate Action: From Planning to Practice”
• “Inspiring Climate Action: Designing Effective Community Engagement”

The MMA’s membership reaffirmed a commitment to climate work in January when they adopted a Resolution Supporting a Local-State-Federal Partnership to Address Climate Change, Enhance Resilience, and Bolster Adaptation Initiatives. The MMA’s webinar series builds on the vision articulated in the resolution to help create stronger, more resilient communities in each corner of the Commonwealth.
