Silicon Valley & Sustainability Alumni: Climate Real Talk: Impact, Opportunities, and Challenges of Personal Actions
June 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Climate change is already here! The devastating aftermath in coastal cities brought by intense rainstorms earlier this year served as a wake-up call for all Californians, and a stark reminder on why the fight against climate change is more important than ever. It’s up to us to rise up, and take personal responsibilities for our energy, transportation, and food consumptions that contribute to the reduction of carbon footprints in our global economy.
Join us for a panel of experts in discussion on the impact, opportunities, and challenges of personal actions. Everyone can choose a role that they can play and become a champion for sustainability and climate change. Let’s unify our efforts in making transformational changes to protect our mother Earth.
