Columbia’s Youth Advisory Council met Tuesday night to learn more about the city’s Climate Action and Adaption Plan.

The council decided one of its goals is to be environmentally friendly, so Eric Hempel, an Energy Educator in the city’s Office of Sustainability, explained to the group what actions they can take as a council and as part of the Columbia Community.Some ideas discussed included waste and light audits in the Columbia Public Schools and members of the youth council using their schools to spread awareness of the climate plan in the city.

Today Paul Pepper visits with BARBARA BUFFALOE, Sustainability Manager at the City of Columbia, about what Columbia's 'Climate Action Plan' means to the people of Mid-Missouri. Next month, the public is invited to attend a council meeting in which the Office of Sustainability will be presenting a comprehensive report that details efforts made by the citizens of Columbia to reduce carbon emissions, and a plan to continue those efforts into the future.
