Leading Equitable Change for Climate Action

Harvard Museum of Natural History - Haller Hall, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge

About the Event

Co-sponsored with the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability

To achieve desired climate action success, whether globally or at the locality level, approaches will require equitable paths forward. Leadership becomes critically important to make this happen.

This session is part of Harvard Climate Action Week and in-person registration is at capacity at this time. If you are registered for Tuesday’s sessions, attend this discussion exploring recent U.S. federal approaches toward equitable climate action, rich examples of how local governments have leveraged federal resources, and what government and community leaders must know about leading equitable change.
