Eleven Indiana cities will develop plans in 2020 to address greenhouse gas emissions as part of the next phase of Indiana University's Resilience Cohort program.
Program participants in 2020 are Carmel, Elkhart, Evansville, Fishers, Fort Wayne, Gary, Goshen, Michigan City, Richmond, West Lafayette, and Zionsville.
Building on the success of the 2019 Resilience Cohort, local governments will work with IU students and staff to identify actions, policies, and programs to reduce emissions, an important step toward building community resilience against climate change.
The Resilience Cohort program matches Hoosier communities with the tools, training, and expertise needed to measure and reduce local greenhouse gas emissions. The program was launched in summer 2019 through a partnership between Sustain IU and the Environmental Resilience Institute, part of the IU Prepared for Environmental Change Grand Challenge initiative.
