Local Climate Action Planning Initiative: Video Overview

The Local Climate Action Planning Initiative serves as a university extension and outreach service with a mission to assist front-line communities throughout Virginia and other states in modeling and developing energy action plans. The LCAPI was the first entity in George Mason University to successfully complete an energy action plan for a Virginia municipality (Manassas City, VA). The LCAPI leverages faculty and student collaborations, as part of its Energy and Climate Policy curriculum and courses, to provide real-world experiential training of students in energy and environmental policy with local governments.
