Leadership for Climate Solutions: Opportunities in the Emerging Regenerative Economy

June 14, 2023 @ 7:30 PM 9:00 PM UTC-8

Scientists have warned us about the climate crisis for decades, and we are now beginning to feel the effects they have long predicted. California and most of the Western U.S. is experiencing a mix of historically high temperatures, fires and smoke, extreme drought followed by record-setting rainstorms and floods, along with widespread power outages. At the same time, attention, energy, creativity, and unprecedented new amounts of funding are flowing into developing solutions. There are many rewards for those who help us innovate our way out of trouble. We need climate solutions with as large an impact as possible, as fast as possible. We need leaders who step in and help create the solutions we that are now so critically required. The next generation will look back at us, at business and community leaders to see how we responded at a time when the signals were clear and courageous decisions needed to be made. What solutions can we ensure they will see? 

This presentation will focus on:

  • very quick review and reframing of the climate emergency and what kinds of solutions are now more important than ever.
  • A review of some of the inspiring solutions and innovations that are emerging, worldwide and locally: from businesses, investors and startups, and from government and non-profit efforts.
  • A discussion of tools and practices that business leaders can use, and how best to mobilize their own capacities and their local network: to engage their people, their colleagues, and their community to find climate solutions in the areas they know best.

We will conclude with time for Q&A and discussion about the challenges for businesses and how leaders can network and collaborate to share information, find new funding sources for solutions, and support innovation in their industries and communities.
