Catalyzing Transformational Leadership for Climate Action

Friday, June 14 | 8 am to 4:00 pm          

Oracle Conference Center, Redwood City

 

 

 

 

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The race is on. From record-breaking wildfires, to more frequent and devastating floods, to decades-long droughts, climate change is accelerating and transforming our world — often with disastrous consequences.  A recent landmark report from the United Nations’ scientific panel on climate change outlines that in order to avoid the worst damage we must transform the world economy at a speed and scale that has “no documented historic precedent.”  What can be done?

Join us on June 14 at Oracle HQ for the 7th annual Silicon Valley Energy & Sustainability Summit for engaging dialogues with business, labor and NGO leaders, and public officials, as we focus on what can be done to speed and scale solutions to address climate change.  At the Summit you will explore how to employ the latest innovative technologies and practices and how various actors are catalyzing transformational leadership for climate action.
