Natural Climate Solutions Working Group (July 14)
14 July, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) Working Group of the Downstate Caucus of the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition meets every other Wednesday from 10am to 11am to further initiatives in Illinois that relate to expanding carbon sinks via:
- Protecting, restoring, and expanding open space and natural area systems.
- Building healthy soil via regenerative agriculture.
Members recognize that land use changes are essential to ensure that carbon is captured and sequestered by open space / natural areas and farm and pasturelands to avert the most disastrous effects of climate change. The Downstate Caucus NCS Working Group is part of the 30 x 30 initiative started by the Illinois Environmental Council.
AGENDA for July 14 Meeting:
- Review IEC goals developed with 30 x 30 working group for regenerative agriculture and local food systems.
- Discuss framing for regenerative agriculture, along with techniques required to sequester carbon.
- Discuss summer listen, lead, share sessions – who will host and plan? What should they include? What is our timeline?
- Continue dialogue of focus areas, based on June survey.
