Event description
Climate Action Summit: Collaboration for building solutions for a more resilient world

About this Event

We are uniting local communities, artists, entrepreneurs, developers, scientists and engineers, to come together and prototype solutions for our climate resilient future.

We are coming together to explore:

How might we use technology to build stronger communities, support people most impacted by climate change and shift into a regenerative economy?

These main themes will guide our discussions and solution development:

  • Regenerative Design & Circular Economy - to restore, renew, and revitalize the energy and resources of Earth, and eliminate waste through continual use of resources in a closed-loop systems.
  • Community Resilience & Inclusion in the Climate Crisis - to support and revitalize our communities that are most impacted by the climate crisis.

Why Now?

The climate crisis is occurring at rates much faster than anticipated, and is harming communities across America. The costs of no action could not only exceed hundreds of billions of dollars annually in the coming decades, but also threaten humanity.

We can expect more wildfires, extreme heat, coastal flooding, water shortages and health problems in the years to come, but these problems won’t affect everyone equally. Climate change is a threat multiplier. It exacerbates and amplifies issues of injustice. People living in poverty, indigenous communities, immigrants and the elderly are expected to suffer disproportionately from problems caused by a changing climate.

Our approach to solving climate impact challenges must be inclusive and address the needs of most vulnerable populations. We are called upon to think differently and include communities most impacted to be part of co-designing solutions.

This event brings people together to address 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Climate Action, Reduced Inequality, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Partnerships for the Goals. For more info about SDGs, visit the UN website.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Come join us on February 1, 2020 to co-create solutions to address the climate crisis. We welcome everyone to participate including artists, technologists, entrepreneurs, designers, scientists, community members and engineers who are ready and willing to work together to generate ideas and create solutions.

Solutions can include anything from digital products, policy proposals, art installations, new apps for community resilience or pitch decks for innovative business ideas.

During this event, we will:

  • Work together to address the question of: How might we use technology to build stronger communities, support people most impacted by climate change and shift into a regenerative economy?
  • Bring diverse people and professions together to co-create solutions related to climate crisis;
  • Create opportunities for artists, technologists, entrepreneurs, designers, community members & engineers to build relationships and continue collaboration beyond this event!
