Linnean is working with the City of Medford on variety of services that will help make information around climate change, vulnerability and risks, and adaptation strategies more accessible to Medford residents and actionable for City staff.

The Medford Office of Energy and Environment recently completed the City’s Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA), a process which Linnean supported through content development; recommendations on language, data, and visuals; and through the graphic production of the final report. In tandem, Linnean is working with the Medford team on a broader engagement and messaging strategy to help the City effectively share information and resources about the city’s climate efforts, as well as work collaboratively with Medford residents and organizations in an ongoing way. Linnean continues to support the Medford team in this process through advising and facilitating public forums and City staff workshops, and is currently working with the team on synthesizing City and community input to develop the City’s climate adaptation plan.
