How community leaders moved conservative-leaning Utah to act on climate
Are you concerned about climate change and want to bring about solutions, but unsure of how to move forward in a conservative community? Hear from Utah leaders on how they transitioned from being a state in which saying "climate change” evoked hostility to having bi-partisan supporters sign onto a statewide Climate and Clean Air Compact. Our expert panel will talk about how the diverse leadership in Salt Lake City grew their climate engagement across the political spectrum to move from inaction, to city involvement, to the whole state of Utah acting on climate.

Join us for this Path to Positive episode of ecoAmerica's webcast series, Let's Talk Climate, on March 11 from 2 - 3 pm ET to hear from:

Sarah Wright, Executive Director of Utah Clean Energy
Josh Craft, Government Relations Representative, Utah Clean Energy

This episode will be moderated by Jennifer Roberts, Director of Path to Positive Communities at ecoAmerica.

Mar 11, 2021 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
