Louisville is experiencing the impacts of climate change with record rainfall, major flooding and more intense and frequent heat waves.
Louisville Metro has launched the Prepare Louisville initiative to increase our community’s resilience to extreme weather and other climate impacts.
The newly-merged Louisville Metro Office of Advanced Planning & Sustainability is working on a Climate Adaptation Plan for Louisville and they are seeking public input to guide this effort as well as raising awareness and providing community members with resources to take action.
Please join us at this open house event to learn more about the impacts that climate change will bring to our city and be a part of our effort to plan strategies to reduce the effects in our communities.
• Lend your voice to the development of the Climate Adaptation Plan.
• Explore potential adaptation strategies for Louisville, with ongoing discussion throughout the event.
• Learn how you can prepare yourself and your home for emergency situations and extreme weather.
• Take home free trees and emergency preparedness kits.
The city is asking for input from experts across the region, but we also want to bring the larger Louisville community along in this process.
UofL's Sustainability Council is proud to host one of three Community Dialogues with the aim of collaborating with residents to analyze the climate risks and develop the adaptation strategies.
All are welcome at the table - students, faculty, staff, and the public.
We will begin with a brief presentation about the analysis and the planning effort, followed by a facilitated dialogue.
Residents also can offer their input through the Prepare Louisville online survey.
