Penn State’s Sustainability Institute presents the Solve Climate By 2030 Webinar

26 Mar 2020 12:57 PM | Abbey Castor

On April 7, 2020, colleges in every state in the US will engage in a new set of power dialogs. Solve Climate by 2030, organized through the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, will host a nationally coordinated on-line event with hundreds of participating schools in every state. College and University partners across the US are coordinating this convening of hundreds of conversations focused on the  potential to solve the energy side of climate change by 2030. 

The event features 52 simultaneous, University hosted webinars, one in every state, and in DC and Puerto Rico. That evening, we will find out what are three, ambitious but feasible actions that need doing in Texas and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida and Minnesota, if we really aim to solve climate change by 2030. Start times vary in the evening by state. The two-hour event begins with the university-hosted, one-hour state-level webinars in each state, followed by 45 minutes of community dialogs.

The Pennsylvania event will be hosted through PERC Member school Penn State. The Pennsylania webinar will focus on strategies that Pennsylvania can adopt to address climate change in the next ten years. Panelists include:

Some of the speakers at the event will be 

Jacqui Bonomo, the Executive Director, PennFuture

Joylette Portlock, Executive Director, Sustainable Pittsburgh

Hannah Smith-Brubaker, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture
