The effects of climate change on health, infrastructure, and communities continue to grow. Local governments are taking action to build new programs and resources that serve their population, increase resilience to climate impacts, and reduce local emissions. Hear from the Chief Climate Officer of Denver, Grace Rink, the Resilience & Adaptation Manager of Denver, Brad Patterson, as well as our Colorado University Climate for Health fellow, Katharine Weber, on how local climate action protects public health.
