2010 Oregon Climate Summit in Eugene
On November 19, 2010, nearly 140 elected officials, public- and private-sector land use and transportation professionals and other interested parties from across the state gathered at the Eugene Hilton Conference Center to participate in a dialogue on what climate change means for Oregon, the co-benefits of climate policy, climate-friendly solutions that advance a variety of community goals and next steps for communities in Oregon.
This summit was hosted by Lane Council of Governments (LCOG) and the Central Lane MPO; and sponsored by the Oregon Metropolitan Planning Organization Consortium (OMPOC), the League of Oregon Cities (LOC) and the Association of Oregon Counties (AOC).
Highlights of the summit included:
- Keynote speaker Dr. William Moomaw, 2007 Nobel Peace Prize recipient and member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, provided the latest on the science and politics of climate change and implications for Oregon.
- National experts John Fregonese, Mike McKeever and Robert Leiter described how climate change policy can be implemented locally and help communities move toward their economic development and livability goals.
- Members representing all four state commissions involved in the state’s climate change policy and planning described how they are working together and partnering with local communities, MPOs and others to develop a Statewide Climate Strategy.
- Participants had an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas on how to move climate policy forward in their communities and throughout Oregon.
