Cities as Climate Leaders: Net Zero & the Urgency of Now

With the effects of climate change at our shores, and the federal administration’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement, the time for local action is now. In order to avoid the most damaging effects of climate change, GHG emissions must be addressed rapidly and comprehensively. This session will focus on holistic approaches to planning for net zero and tools to help cities and towns set and achieve ambitious climate goals. The audience will learn about tools and resources to help them accelerate their communities toward net zero, best practices from a local practitioner about how to get there, and insights into how to engage the private cleantech sector in supporting that work.
