Dale Medearis


Dr. Dale Medearis is a senior environmental planner for the Northern Virginia Regional Commission. In that capacity, he co-leads the NVRC’s regional climate mitigation and energy programs and manages NVRC’s international environmental partnerships – among the few problem-focused, goal-oriented and geographically-specific transfer of lessons from abroad to the US.

He helped co-launch the first formal climate and energy partnership between the 40 largest U.S. and European metropolitan regional councils, co-initiate the Transatlantic Climate Bridge, co-launch the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s “Cities and Climate” Network and co-develop the Transatlantic Urban Climate Dialogue with the Freie Universitaet of Berlin (Germany). Prior to working for NVRC, Medearis spent approximately 20 years at the Office of International Affairs, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, as the program manager for western Europe and urban environmental programs.

Medearis has a PhD in environmental design and planning from Virginia Tech University, an MS in Cartographic and Geographic Science from George Mason University, an MGA in Government from the University of Pennsylvania, and a BA in International Relations from the University of Redlands. He is adjunct faculty in environmental policy and planning at Johns Hopkins University.
