Guest blog by Clark County
Here in Southern Nevada, we understand the weather is unique. Triple-digit temperatures and very little rain are part of the deal when you’re a Vegas local. But what happens when those temps continue to increase and the drought is measured in decades, not years? Five of our last six years have been the hottest on record for Southern Nevada. Climate change is threatening our resources. Our water, our power grid, even the health of our residents is being challenged by our changing climate.
What can we do about it? It’s time to go All-In on climate change.
What is All-In Clark County?
All-in Clark County is our commitment to address climate change and create a more sustainable future for all. This effort takes a smart, bold and inclusive approach to creating a sustainable community for the well-being and prosperity of all, today and for future generations.
“How Can I Go All-In?”
First step: stay informed. It’s why we’re hosting the All-In Clark County Virtual Forum Series. These free, online forums are interactive discussions for you to learn about various local efforts to address climate change. The forums are also a place for you to ask questions, provide input and become a part of the solution. We need people just like you to share your concerns with us. Then we can work together to develop solutions that build a sustainable and resilient future for our residents, businesses and visitors alike.
Our next Forum is coming up Wednesday, March 16 at 4 p.m. and it’s a big one: Connected and Equitable Mobility. We will discuss how we develop a safe, connected and accessible transportation system that prioritizes low-carbon mobility, public transportation and active lifestyles. You’ve got questions and thoughts and we want to hear them, so register here to attend. Did we mention it’s free?
If you can’t join this one, we’ve got two more coming up:
- Thursday, March 24, 7 – 9 p.m.: Smart Buildings and Development
- Monday, March 28, noon – 2 p.m.: Diverse and Circular Economy
Go to the All-In Clark County Virtual Forum Series page for registration information on all the forums. If you miss one, no worries. You can also watch recordings of the past forums as well as view shared documents and discussion threads. Learn about the All-In community plan at Plan.AllinClarkCounty.com.
We can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines and wait. Bringing positive change to Clark County begins with you. We need you to go All-In with us. See you at the forums!
