Sustainable Communities Webinar Series: Northeast Forum on Climate and Waste Connections
Region 2 Clean Diesel Webinars

The Sustainable Communities Webinar Series was created for local governments and communities to learn about how to implement sustainability strategies. The webinars will emphasize peer exchange, presentations from experts, and use of decision support tools. Over the course of a year, the Sustainable Communities Webinar Series will address many topics featured in the handbook, Planning for a Sustainable Future - A Guide for Local Governments.

EPA Region 2 is hosting a series of free web-based information sessions and discussions with experts pertaining to clean diesel practices and strategies. The sessions are intended to share information with municipalities, municipal planning organizations and other interested parties on several clean diesel topics such as air quality and climate change impacts, green construction, biofuels, and funding opportunities. Ultimately, these sessions will help communities integrate clean diesel practices into environmental plans. The goals of these information sessions include:

  • Inform participants on current and successful clean diesel strategies
  • Provide guidance for obtaining federal funding for projects
  • Work with communities to incorporate clean diesel practices into environmental plans.

The audio recording from the session is posted below (as mp3 files) along with the powerpoint slides (as pdf files).
