Requested: Staff Engagement Information and Strategies
Request for information from local government agencies regarding
staff engagement practices as they pertain to energy efficiency,
sustainability, climate change, climate adaptation etc. efforts and

your projects/initiatives from decision makers, city council/board
of supervisors, your staff, and your community. We also want to
hear about what are some of the obstacles you face in moving

organization has rolled out an engagement strategy that was
successful in changing the culture in your organization to be
supportive of your initiatives we’d love to hear about it.
This information will help guide the development of a staff engagement
plan for a fellow local government
