Cities, States, Regions and Civil Society Leading on Climate Change
Feedback form is now closed.
In light of the lack of significant action by many national governments and the Trump administration's climate denial and active torpedoing of the Paris Climate Accords, many cities, states, regions and citizens' groups around the world are taking matters into their own hands with very creative and promising approaches. With: Amanda Brown-Stevens, Executive Director of the Bay Area Resilience By Design Challenge; Andy Lipkis, founder/President of TreePeople in Los Angeles; Alexa Kleysteuber, Deputy Secretary for Border and Intergovernmental Relations for CalEPA. Hosted by Teo Grossman, Senior Director of Programs & Research, Bioneers.
