Climate change, and often the responses to it, are unfair. People who are socially, economically, culturally, politically, institutionally or otherwise marginalised are especially vulnerable to climate change. Moreover, these communities cannot always access the benefits of climate action.

If addressing climate change does not meet the needs of city residents, mayors and governments risk losing permission to act.

Join our Inclusive Climate Action Webinar Series and learn more about what inclusive and equitable climate action looks like in practice in cities.

Sustainable DC 2.0 Plan

Stephen Gyor, Lead Sustainability Planner DC Office of Planning and Dan Guilbeault, Chief, Sustainability & Equity Branch, Urban Sustainability Administration, Department of Energy and Environment, Washington DC – 08/15/2019 15:00 UTC   Find your time zone

Washington DC saw the need of updating the 2013 Sustainable DC Plan to meet the new economic, political, and social change occurring in the District and across U.S., and leverage from the new opportunities that had arisen since. This resulted in the launch of the Sustainable DC 2.0 Plan, an ambitious sustainability plan aligned with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

In this webinar you will be able to learn how the Sustainable DC 2.0 Plan engaged with the people and communities most impacted by inequity, holding 3,000 conversations with residents across the District to better understand community priorities. After 20 months of consultation with over 4,000 people, the new plan addressed equity, climate, economy, education, and health to make the District of Columbia the healthiest, greenest, most livable city for all its residents.
