ECO Orleans


Who We Are

ECO Orleans initiates and collaborates to foster the use of best practices for living with a changing climate in Orleans. It does so by:

  • Supporting Orleans community residents and town committees in focused action to anticipate, plan for, mitigate, and adapt to climate change impacts.
  • Fostering collaboration among town departments and committees to interweave the separate components of climate strategies.
  • Gathering information for long-term planning regarding vulnerabilities, both to inform and assist residents in preparation for likely changes as well as address matters under the purview of the Orleans town government.

Our current project involves conversations with 14 Orleans Town Committee Chairs and liaisons regarding the impact of climate change on the work of the committee on which they serve.  Conversations will inform a picture of how climate factors into committees’ current work and cross-committee collaboration, data collection and use, and communication with the community. The intention is to construct a brief yet comprehensive report that will be made available to participating committees, Select Board members, and others upon request.
