Through generating innovation and momentum, our cities can inspire the private, public, and third sectors to take informed action on pressing issues. So, what is the role of our cities in combatting the global challenge of climate change?
Our expert panelists will challenge the audience to reflect on the role of cities as key drivers of sustainable and equitable climate success. We’ll hear a global perspective on the need for city-based actions. We’ll explore the role of the private sector in accelerating public plans. We’ll look to local advocates for inspiration on what change is possible. And we’ll learn about the City of Chicago’s sustainability initiatives. Through generating thought and action from diverse perspectives, this multi-sector panel will help us understand the urgent need for a comprehensive city strategy, urban research, and local action to overcome climate challenges.
