As the threat of Global Climate Change further intensifies, we in the Adirondack region are obligated as communities to look inward at what we can do to reduce our environmental impact on this delicate and forever-wild forest surrounding us. Our economy is dependent upon our environment and protecting that environment must go hand-in-hand with developing a strong and thriving focused economy. LivingADK seeks to promote initiatives that find that essential balance between preserving our environmental heritage and natural assets while also bringing year-round robust economic growth to the area.  

We stand at the forefront of implementing new policies now that New York has passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).  LivingADK is using the Climate Smart Communities and Clean Energy Community programs hosted by the DEC and NYSERDA respectively as a guidebook for helping to update policy and procedure as well as identifying funding resources for conversions.  The Town of Webb notably has now achieved the prestigious label of "Designated Clean Energy Community." 

LivingADK will continue to look at ways of mitigating the negative effects of global climate change on our region and encourage regional actions to act as good environmental stewards.
