Sustainability Starts at Home
Today for Earth Week, let’s focus on community resilience!
Resilience is a key component of sustainability. It is the ability to bounce back from major disruptions, from COVID-19, to floods, to extreme drought, heat, wind, or fire, as well as toxic spills. Unfortunately, with climate change we will be seeing more and more of these types of crisis. For Erie to be a truly sustainable community, maintaining healthy and prosperous social, economic and environmental conditions, we need to build in resilience with the right plans, funds, infrastructure, and resources, including energy, communication, transportation, and food.
