  2. Overview of Workshop 1.3 Reading & Carleton 2011 Climate Action Plan
  3. Discussion Questions:
    • Review the overarching structure of the 2011 Carleton Climate Action Plan (CAP) – do a carbon reduction section and an education / outreach section still make sense?
    • Review the specific sections in the 2011 plan – should any be deleted or added? How have things changed in ten years
      • Included in 2011 plan: energy, land management, waste, transportation, procurement, inside the classroom, outside the classroom, after the classroom, campus & community engagement, research
      • Not included in the 2011 plan: water, food, environmental justice, resilience, adaptation, carbon pricing, divestment / ESG investment, etc.
    • What do we like about the “staff picks”? What appears to make these plans successful?
