Climate-focused initiative appoints regional director to address climate issues

A community partnership aimed at educating the Southwest Florida region on climate change solutions has appointed a regional director.

A slew of local organizations: from the Community Foundation of Collier County and Florida Gulf Coast University to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida teamed up to form Growing Climate Solutions – Path to Positive Southwest Florida.

The initiative’s goals are to “empower community members and leaders to initiate change, ensure a prosperous and healthy community, build climate literacy and protect natural assets,” according to its website.

The consortium of groups named Ana Puszkin-Chevlin as the regional director for the new initiative.
