Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DCAC), an initiative of Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice, is developing the city of Detroit’s first Climate Action Plan with District Community Leaders meeting with people from various sectors, including residents, block club captains, nonprofit leaders, pastors, and small business owners. We intend to develop innovative solutions to reduce carbon pollution and believe that engagement and input from the community are key roles in this process. DCAC wants to ensure that Detroit is more livable and resilient in the face of climate change. Our approach to climate change is through an environmental justice lens. The Detroit Climate Action Plan is an opportunity for Detroit to come back in a way that is built on good paying jobs that go hand in hand with clean neighborhoods, better health, strong city services and lower costs for businesses and residents. Health Sector Based Meeting on Climate Change Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DCAC) Public Health Forum, which will be held on Monday, August 17th at the University of Michigan Detroit Center, located at 3663 Woodward Avenue, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. DCAC is leading the development of the city of Detroit’s first Climate Action Plan, which will be released this fall. This Forum is a great opportunity for you to provide feedback on the DCAC public health chapter of the Climate Action Plan, and to engage with other health practitioners and others about how to effectively address the health impact of climate change in Detroit.
