Get in-depth information about the context, content, and potential results of the UN climate summit coming up soon in Glasgow. Climate experts from the UN, federal and state governments in the western region of the United States, nonprofit organizations, and the academic community will explore:
* The need for all nations to demonstrate their political will with greater commitments and robust action plans to counter the existential threat of potentially irreversible global warming — recently highlighted in a new report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
* The unique leadership role that the United States and its western states must play to mitigate the climate crisis
* Plans for future action.
Speakers at this webinar, sponsored by the western regions of the United Nations Association, include Annie Leonard, co-executive director of Greenpeace and Dr. Rupa Marya, Bay Area physician and environmental justice activist, along with many other advocates, public officials, and United Nations Association leaders.
