Overview

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.  Living ADK has also used efforts like the Old Forge Farmers Market to increase access to local producers in reducing the communities carbon footprint while also strengthening the local food supply chain and supporting local suppliers.  LivingADK will continue to integrate environmental considerations into the conversation of the region to ensure a fair future.
