Climate-Safe California Policy Summit

This webinar is the final installment of The Climate Center’s Climate Safe California webinar series.

The Climate-Safe California Policy Summit brings together scientists and policymakers to examine the opportunities for climate action in front of California lawmakers today. Grounded in the reality of climate impacts like drought and extreme heat, the Summit will cover proposed legislation in the areas of sustainable transportation, community energy resilience, nature-based carbon sequestration, and more. Speakers include members of the California legislature, policy advocates, and experts on climate science (full list of speakers below). This will be an action-oriented webinar focused on passing legislation this year to combat the climate crisis and safeguard communities — we hope you’ll join us!
