A free, virtual workshop tailored to help communities address fundamental industrial change will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 3.
This webinar is being provided by the federal Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Economic Revitalization.
Communities are often surprised when a power plant or mine announces it will close. Starting to plan as early as possible for the impacts of such a closure is critical to achieving more successful outcomes. This webinar will provide guidance on getting started, including a discussion with community leaders who have been there and can offer their perspective on what works.
The webinar, titled “Where to Start? Webinar for Energy Communities Starting a Transformation” will take place from 1-2:30 p.m.
Highlights of the working agenda include:
– Expert advice on a range of pertinent issues, including guiding principles and challenges addressing change, leaders and partnerships, issues and questions to consider, and lessons learned;
– A checklist of necessary activities and case studies;
– A task list for developing a plan that addresses financial, employment and social disruptions;
– Where to find capacity assistance on the local, state and federal level.
