Mayor Tom Henry will be a featured panelist at the Climate Leadership Summit to Wednesday in Indianapolis. The event is designed to inspire action to create climate-resilient communities across Indiana, and topics of discussion will include green jobs, public health and youth engagement. The event is led by Earth Charter Indiana, McKinney Family Foundation and the city of Indianapolis.

"Climate change greatly impacts our quality of life and economic well-being. It's important for government leaders and stakeholders to collaborate to move our respective communities in the right direction," Henry said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to sharing best practices from Fort Wayne and learning about other efforts to improve our environment."

The city of Fort Wayne has promoted sustainability by increasing energy independence at the sewage treatment plant, changing traffic signals to energy efficient LED lighting, use of environmentally friendly vehicles, recycling participation and efforts to improve river-water quality.
