  • Learn about how EGLE is providing resources to local communities as they prepare for climate impacts

    Catalyst Communities

    The Catalyst Communities Initiative is a comprehensive initiative that aims to provide education, training, planning and technical resources to local public officials as they prepare for climate impacts on emergency response and public health. This initiative is a multi-tiered instruction curriculum on adapting locally to the impacts of climate change on communities, mitigating harms and implementing clean energy solutions.

    Michigan has 1,856 local jurisdictions, ranging from the big cities to the small villages and townships, and each community may have different resources, staffing or departments they manage. Catalyst Communities webinars and events are free to communities, recorded and then posted online for future viewing, which takes out the constraints of time, travel and cost for communities. 

    Visit the EGLE Calendar and search keyword "Catalyst Communities" to find all upcoming webinars.
