CLIMATE CHANGE: Global Challenge and Local Responses

Andy Pattison and Sharon Anderson

Cazenovia Forum celebrates Earth Day 2021 with Talk on Climate Change 
The Cazenovia Forum will celebrate Earth Day 2021 with a presentation April 23 by Andy Pattison, assistant professor of environmental studies at Colgate University. Prof. Pattison’s talk, “Climate Change: Global Challenge and Local Responses” will look at issues of sustainability and climate planning and policy. Moderating Prof. Pattison’s talk will be Sharon Anderson of EcoLogic, LLC in Cazenovia.

Prof. Pattison has worked in both the public and private sectors as a sustainability and climate-change consultant. and has worked with dozens of local governments, private companies, nonprofits, and educational institutions on climate action and sustainability planning as well as energy conservation strategies.
He and Anderson will discuss how local communities and local governments plan for changes in climate, specifically opportunities for and examples of best practices, available resources and tools and public engagement.
In a 2009 interview with the New York Times, Prof. Pattison noted that environmentalism has evolved since its early days and that sustainability has emerged as a field that looks at specific problems and seeks solutions. “The environmental movement has expanded to understand that people are at the center of these issues,” he told the Times then. “Environmental policy is about balancing environmental, economic and social-equity concerns, and we (finally) are getting better at the last piece.”
Anderson’s work focusses on flood resilience and energy issues. She recently joined EcoLogic in Cazenovia where she leads community engagement and outreach for the CLEAR (Coastal Lakeshore Economy and Resiliency) initiative. This NYS-funded initiative guides Lake Ontario shoreline communities in planning for changing water levels.
The presentation is free and open to public and will live stream via Zoom at 7 p.m. To register for the event, go to:
