Climate Preparedness Week

Concord recognizes September 24-30, 2019 as “Climate Preparedness Week”

The Town of Concord has committed to taking action on climate by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050 and preparing to be resilient to the changes to our climate that we are already experiencing, including extreme heat, extreme precipitation, intense storms, and increased flooding.

We invite and encourage all residents to join us in recognizing Climate Preparedness Week by participating in events and activities planned by partners across Town.
