According to Sustainability Associate Jamie Kidwell the meeting will offer the community a chance to learn about the new Community Climate Partnership which includes the city, the Ecology Center, the Huron River Watershed Council and others.  Kidwell says they will also be seeking feedback.

Kidwell since the city operations are only responsible for about two percent of Ann Arbor’s overall greenhouse gas production it’s important to get community participation. 

Wednesday’s meeting starts at 7.  The series will continue next month with a meeting focusing on local food.
