The Heat is On: Strategies & Solutions for Helping Achieve Climate Justice

July 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The impacts of climate change are increasingly upon us – from extreme heat to drought to fires. To continue to thrive on our planet for the long-term it is necessary to work together—governments, companies, civil society, and individuals—to reduce the carbon emissions causing climate change and enable the energy transition.

Whether due to the nature of our job, or if we have adequate tree cover in our neighborhood, or if we have access to safe and stable housing, or the historical burden of pollution where we live, each individual and community is impacted differently. How can we support environmental and climate justice? How can we work together to create more resiliency and protect the health and well-being, as well as livelihoods of people living in vulnerable areas? This starts with understanding the systemic reasons behind these historical and ongoing inequities and then working together to address them and build equitable solutions.

In parallel, as governments and companies accelerate their move away from a fossil-fuel- based energy system and towards a clean, renewable energy system, there is a need to foster policies that share the benefits and opportunities of the green transition. This includes access to good jobs with health and safety protections and fair wages and benefits, as well as education and training to make the transition to new green jobs. What is already happening to secure this future, and what more is needed? What role do we have as consumers, investors, and community members to help make a difference?
