Local climate change event with panelists
“The Climate Challenge: What can we do?” will be the topic of a Zoom panel discussion to be presented on Tuesday, November 16 at 7 p.m. As a local follow-up of the COP26, 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, panel participants will focus on individual actions. Participating will be Richard Haskell, Professor Emeritus Harvey Mudd College, Stuart Wood, Director of Sustainable Claremont, Marilyn Scaff, Director of Blue Planet United and student activists from the Claremont Colleges and Claremont High School.
Approaching the future in a positive manner, the planners emphasize, “Though the issues we face are daunting, this is a time to invite hope into our future. All around the world, communities, often inspired and led by young people, are taking action, sharing ideas, developing solutions, demanding more from governments and corporations, and bravely leaning into the wind. The next generation is taking action for the future, for justice and health, for economic security and sustainability, and for the right of all humans to inherit a stable home planet where one can seek joy, wonder, and wisdom froth great diversity of life that we share this home with. Join us for a lively and informative evening.”
The event is sponsored by United Nations Association of Pomona Valley, Sustainable Claremont, Blue Planet United and UNA of the Claremont Colleges.
