In this kick-off event, leaders from across the State of Michigan will share work underway to enhance the resilience of Michiganders. Attendees will learn about resources that can help advance local and regional resilience, stories of how state agencies are integrating resilience into their operations, and the stories of efforts to enhance resilience in some Michigan communities. Attendees will also learn more about a new cohort-based training program that will guide participants through the creation of a resilience and localized decarbonization plan. Join us at this exciting webinar and become part of the community working to ensure Michigan remains a resilient state for all.
The Clean Energy and Energy Mangaement webinar series features local governments from across the state--both large and small--sharing with their peers their successes and challenges in improving the energy efficiency of their buildings or moving toward more renewable energy.

Michigan has approximately 387 communities that border the coast. State regulatory authorities help to reduce impacts to the shoreline and state designated sensitive areas such as high-risk erosion areas, wetlands, critical dunes, and environmental areas, yet local efforts are essential for a healthy coast. The Michigan Coastal Management Program and the Land Information Access Association are working together to help coastal communities become more resilient to the dynamic conditions that come with living, working, and playing on the shores of the Great Lakes.
Through resilient planning, a coastal community can prepare itself to absorb and adapt to the Great Lakes high and low water levels; coastal storms and floods; manage social and environmental changes; and build a better and more reliable local economy. The Resilient Michigan Collaborative is a great first step of introducing a community to the resilient principles through technical assistance and grant funding. During this webinar, the Michigan Coastal Management Program and Land Information Access Association will present an overview of the Resilient Michigan Collaborative and explain how your community can take advantage of this opportunity.
