NOW: Youth Caucus in Goshen signs environmental resolution

GOSHEN, Ind. -- The Youth Caucus in Goshen signed an environmental resolution on Tuesday.

The resolution was drawn up by Youth Adviser Félix Pérez Diener, the Goshen High School Youth Caucus, elected officials and experts in the field of environmental protection.

The resolution passed unanimously at a council meeting Tuesday, April 23.

The Mayor, the Clerk-Treasurer and the eight members of the Youth Caucus all signed the resolution on Tuesday.

"I’m happy to say that the City Council saw it that way and didn’t make any changes at the council meeting," Mayor of Goshen, Jeremy Stutsman said. 

The City of Goshen government agency will commit to reduce carbon emissions, increase energy efficiency and renewable energy use and seek to become climate change-resilient.

“Goshen as a whole community is very supportive of action against climate change and we saw that in the decision," Jonathon Snyder, a Senior at Goshen High School said.

Their goal will be to have a 45 percent tree canopy in Goshen by 2045.
