Actions and Detail Panel
City of Palo Alto Sustainability and Climate Action Summit
Sun, January 24, 2016, 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM PST
Thanks for your interest in attending Palo Alto’s Climate Action Summit. We are now fully subscribed for the capacity of our venue, and so have closed registration. We will however, make every effort to accommodate walk-ins at the Summit on Sunday, but will be limited to Palo Alto residents only. There will also be other opportunities to weigh in and hear more about the Sustainability and Climate Action Plan – the first at a study session scheduled for January 25 at the regular City Council meeting. We look forward to your future participation.
Join us for a conversation on the future of the City, and help craft solutions to the critical issues facing us now and into the future.
This half-day program will start with a keynote address from Marine Col. (ret.) Mark Mykleby, who led the development of climate and national security strategy for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, examining how the nation can thrive in the face of climate change.
The City’s Sustainability team will present the work done to date on the Sustainability and Climate Action Plan that will guide Palo Alto towards a more sustainable future. Then you’ll have a chance to speak to critical issues like Transportation, Electrification, Water, Climate Adaptation, and Becoming a Carbon Neutral City in small break-out discussions that will become part of the larger conversation (including at a City Council study session the next evening, Monday January 25.)
Every initiative to reduce carbon, conserve water, and improve transportation affects all residents. We hope you’ll join us to share your perspectives, experience and aspirations for the future Palo Alto you want to see and live in.
This event is free and open to the community. But you must register, since space is limited.
Registration starts at 12:00 Noon and the program begins at 12:30 PM. Light snacks will be provided.
