The urgency to take action on climate change has become increasingly evident, but solutions are at hand that will improve public health, create economic opportunity, and strengthen our resilience as a state and a nation.   This program will serve as a forum for discussion on current and future policy options on the local, state, federal and international levels to meet the global challenges of climate change.
