The Urgency of Climate Action

The Urgency of Climate Action

Join us on July 14th from noon to 1 p.m. CDT for our virtual conversation on the Urgency of Climate Action. We are in an important moment where a public health pandemic has demonstrated the value of science-based policy and the interconnectedness of our world. The fragility of our social infrastructure, visible in this moment, is also a challenge in building resilient and equitable progress on environmental issues. How can this inform our understanding of climate action and how cities and organizations might respond going forward?
