NCL data collection campaign
This session is open to anyone, however it is also part of training for the National Climate League's data collection campaign. Interested in learning about the National Climate League and how you can join this participatory, volunteer-led data collection project tracking municipal climate action?
From measuring greenhouse gas emissions to tracking local air quality as wildfire seasons intensify, data can be complex but it is also a critical component in all climate mitigation and adaptation activities.
