How to Scale Local Climate Success Up and Out

Media climate coverage is so full of fire, flood and politics there’s often scant space for solutions. It’s no wonder #climategrief has become a hashtag.
Behind the headlines, we all know thousands of innovations by individuals in communities and companies large and small are boosting climate resilience and helping spread the clean-energy transition.
But if such efforts are to get anywhere near the necessary scale, there's a vital need to connect and collaborate amid the noise clogging our digital commons. In this brainstorming session, the audience will explore fresh tactics and tools with a leading climate communicator and innovators sparking change in New York City’s antiquated schools, the wildfire zones of the West and along the Shinnecock Indian Nation's eroding coastline.
