What Your Colleagues Are Saying About the Summit

  • Lauren McDonell, Aspen, CO, Global Warming Project Coordinator:
    “What makes the Local Action Summit different is that people will really walk away with something new. It gives people the tools to take action. At a lot of conferences you hear the same thing, but rarely do you get something new, which is what sets this event apart from others."

  • Karen Hundt, Chattanooga, TN, Director, Planning and Design:
    "Just hearing what other communities are doing is so valuable. You can learn a lot from others taking on the same challenges that you are--their successes and their failures."

  • Susanne Torriente, Miami Dade County, FL, Director, Office of Sustainability:
    “EECBG and PACE are huge priorities for local governments, and the Local Action Summit sessions will help us share ideas to move them forward and make federal decision-makers understand our priorities.”

  • Neil Ridgely, Carroll County, MD, Sustainability Coordinator:
    "This event will be an opportunity to gather and share creative ideas for how to overcome the obstacles so many local governments face—to implement effective projects in tough times and tough bureaucracies."
