During May I produced the second edition of the PCI newsletter and added local media outlets and government officials to the distribution list, giving PCI more exposure in important circles. I have been performing research for the Higher Education Climate Consortium on potential fall outreach events that were identified at the first quarterly HECC meeting in March. I have been in touch with local organizations to gather information on tree plantings, rain garden installations, composting, and seed collecting. Another idea identified by HECC has been to aggregate all school inventory data to better track emissions and reductions for HECC as a whole, and I have been researching the process for accomplishing this. I have also been looking at ways to collaborate with Allegheny County and get municipalities outside Pittsburgh more involved in the sustainability and climate work being undertaken by PCI. This was one of the topics discussed in the PCI monthly meeting I convened, where we also did some long-term planning for future grant proposals. Lastly, I've been assisting GBA with their strategic planning process by performing a carbon footprint analysis and working with city data.
