What Can a County Do to Address Climate Change?
A Conversation with Dane County Executive Joe Parisi
Monday, October 3

Want to know what a county can do to address climate change? Join 350 Wisconsin on Monday, October 3, to hear Dane County Executive Joe Parisi talk about Dane County’s strategies for reducing countywide emissions. Learn about strategies for reducing emissions in county operations, as well as efforts to spur emission reductions across local governments, businesses, nonprofits, and households in the county. Find out how Dane County leads by example.

An advocate for the “art of the possible,” Executive Parisi will talk about specific strategies that any county in Wisconsin could implement. First elected as county executive in 2011, Joe established the Dane County Office of Energy and Climate Change in 2017. In 2020, Dane County issued a Climate Action Plan that sets forth the path for cutting countywide emissions in half by 2030, all without new policy authority.

Join us online or in person (in Madison) at our first-ever hybrid meeting! Please choose whichever option works best for you.
