  • UW-Extension Local Government Will Hold a Summit on Energy & Resilience on November 18th
    October 2, 2015

    The Wisconsin Academy, through our Climate & Energy Initiative, will convene a full-day leadership summit for local government leaders from Wisconsin and energy program leaders to advance clean energy, efficiency, and resilience for their communities.

    Our aim is to share best practices in—and identify needs for—moving communities and Wisconsin forward in curbing carbon emissions and encouraging energy innovation. This event will bring these groups together to learn what resources currently exist, and how organizations could collaborate more effectively. We hope that this summit will build the foundation for an ongoing annual conference.

    DATE: Wednesday, November 18, 2015 (8:30am-5pm)

    Dreyfus University Center • UW-Stevens Point
