Regional Forum - Decarbonizing Rental Housing While Protecting Tenants
Join us to learn how local governments can approach equitable rental housing stock decarbonization. We’ll hear about concerns renters have about decarbonization and energy efficiency upgrades and the legal and policy landscape around tenant protections in California and the Bay Area, and we will explore local and national leading examples in formulating a comprehensive approach to community engagement, policy and program development, and market transformation. This forum will help attendees develop a more nuanced understanding of the issue and will provide exposure to promising case studies and practical tools that Bay Area jurisdictions can pick up and run with. Speakers will include people from local community-based organizations as well as national experts. This online Forum is free and open to all.
