As part of our Inwood Climate & Health Project, we have formed a Task Force of volunteers from Inwood who are interested in developing an action plan to address specific health issues driven or exacerbated by climate change in Inwood. At our community conversation on August 17, 2019, extreme heat was identified as the issue the community would like to address. And we held our kickoff meeting of the Inwood Climate & Health Task Force on August 27th, 2019, which included an educational workshop designed to strengthen each participant’s knowledge of these issues. On September 7th, we created an action plan for addressing extreme heat and its health impacts in Inwood.
On Saturday, October 26th, 2019, we’re having a Town Hall from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at a location in Inwood (we hope to be announcing the exact location shortly). During this meeting, we will present the action plan developed with our Task Force to address extreme heat and its impacts on the community.
