Woolwich Climate Resilience Committee now forming

The Town of Woolwich has a new citizen committee: the Woolwich Climate Resilience Committee. The committee’s mission is to enhance Woolwich’s resilience to climate impacts by developing and implementing a comprehensive climate resilience action plan, driven by community insights and data analysis, and supported by strategic grant funding and partnerships.

The committee will begin by re-enrolling in the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future’s (GOPIF) Community Resilience Partnership program, which will make the town eligible for community action grants.

The committee will, after collecting hard data and surfacing community values that emerge through public discussion, identify priority resilience actions to implement, and develop a climate resilience action plan.

This is a five person volunteer citizen committee (with two alternates) to be made up of Woolwich residents with diverse perspectives. We will reserve one spot on the committee for a Morse High School student to support the development of the next generation of climate stewards, as well as one spot for a member of the local working waterfront, if possible.
