Event Description

Recent events like the Canadian wildfire smoke demonstrate how air quality gains can be eroded by climate change, having a disproportionate impact on communities already struggling with heat, air quality concerns, and their associated health impacts. What is the government doing to address these risks and get at the root causes of our climate crisis? How can community organizations and residents partner with local businesses, academic organizations, and government to cause real change in policy and outcomes? Learn more on the challenge and the opportunities to empower communities to lead the way into a cleaner, safer, healthier future.
