It’s time to update the College’s Climate Action Plan, and we want to hear from you!

While significant progress has been made since 2013 when the plan was last finalized, PCC wants to gather thoughtful input from the College community now as it plans its march toward a long-term sustainable future. Specifically, PCC seeks to advance climate justice by setting science-based targets for carbon neutrality; addressing local inequities exacerbated by climate change; emphasizing resiliency; and centering equity both in the engagement process and mitigation strategies.

Given PCC’s remote operations due to COVID-19, a variety of opportunities have been created to enable virtual participation:

  • A series of 75-minute listening sessions will take place this week, beginning Tuesday, June 2. Led by an evaluator, they offer a live opportunity to hear about the update process, ask questions, and provide input. To participate, register for one of the following sessions:

Add to the discussion

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
