Professor Peter Calow and Associate Professor Gabe Chan were recently appointed to working groups that support Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz's Climate Action Framework. Calow is a member of the clean economy group, and Chan is on the energy and buildings group.
The framework sets a vision for how the state of Minnesota will address and prepare for climate change. The goal is to identify immediate, near-term actions to take to achieve the long-term goal of a carbon-neutral, resilient and equitable future for Minnesota.
The workgroups will meet approximately six times from March to May to review the draft framework and provide input on potential changes to the Framework and its implementation.
