Sustainability Officer Roundtable presented by MetroWest Climate Solutions
- Date: Thursday, September 28, 2023
- Time: 7:00pm–9:00pm
- Location:FPCW Parish Hall
- Contact: Jeff Barz-Snell
MetroWest Climate Solutions will host a moderated roundtable discussion with three sustainability professionals from local towns:
Julie Gagen, Sustainability Coordinator, Weston
Jillian Wilson Martin, Director of Sustainability, Natick
Abigail Shute, Sustainability Manager, Wayland
In recent years, many local towns have created roles for sustainability specialists. These professionals lead and coordinate their town’s sustainability initiatives and help to raise awareness about environmental issues. They develop and implement sustainability plans, monitor progress, and report on results. The sustainability officer works closely with relevant town committees and community members to promote practices such as waste reduction, energy efficiency, and sustainable transportation. Creating sustainable policies can help towns save money by securing funding via local, state, or private sources.
The session will be offered at First Parish Church in Weston (349 Boston Post Rd, Weston) and via Zoom. Stay tuned for registration details.
