We live today in an uneven world, defined significantly by energy injustice. Moving from here to the Paris climate goals will require an extraordinarily rapid and global transition—over the next ten years–towards clean energy. How can we ensure we create a just energy system in the transition? Join the Security and Sustainability Forum and Bard College in a sixty minute session about how innovative city and state policy will be critical to ensure justice in the economic transformation needed to solve the energy side of climate change by 2030. Panelists are entrepreneur and energy democracy leader Michael Dorsey and Eban Goodstein, Director of the Center for Environmental Policy at Bard College. The webinar will also present a new Bard-led program, Solve Climate by 2030. The program is supporting a nationwide series of campus and community Power Dialogs to engage 100,000 students in critical conversations about power as in clean energy, but also about power as in engaged civic action. Educators, local leaders, state policy officials and citizens, learn more in the webinar.
On this webinar speakers will provide an overview of how the health sector contributes to climate change and showcase initiatives being instituted by health systems and health organizations to reduce climate pollution.
Case studies, lessons learned, and resources for utilities will be shared so utilities can learn from one another and improve their resilience to multiple challenges, including natural disasters, cyber threats, climate conditions, and aging infrastructure.
