“Listen for the unexpected,” Nicole Ferrini, El Paso, Texas

As the new administration seeks to cut climate change budgets nationwide, Mother Nature doesn’t wait, so local communities are left having to take action regardless of what the federal government does.  So, we’re talking with folks on the front lines in our communities who are doing great work. This episode in the series is with Nicole Ferrini, the Chief Resilience Officer of El Paso, Texas, and one of the most creative community leaders.

Listen to Nicole tell Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson:

  • How to listen to your residents, business owners, and even the folks who come there just to work.
  • The nuances of being in oil-dominated Texas – and what other “red” states can learn from El Paso.
  • Creative funding strategies to fill the gap.
  • 4 tips for community leaders on the front lines of climate change.
  • Career tips for this new role in cities, and how creative training matters.

“Get involved, get engaged and you’ll find yourself in a place you didn’t expect,” Nicole Ferrini
