Climate Leaders Live: Building a Clean Energy Future Together
Date
May 19, 2020, 11am - 12pm
This Event is part of our Climate Leaders Live series.

In this webinar, we discussed solutions to the climate crisis during this challenging time of the COVID pandemic. Featured speakers included Dr. Lucas Joppa, the Chief Environmental Officer at Microsoft and the architect of Microsoft’s global climate commitment, Washington State Representative and Speaker of the House Laurie Jinkins, and our Executive Director Gregg Small as well as some other special guests - Senator Mona Das, Representative Debra Lekanoff, Ken Workman, Ash Awad, and Stephanie Noren.

We have an urgent opportunity for this place we love. Now more than ever as we experience climate impacts, it is clear we need to accelerate the transition to 100% clean and efficient energy in the region and beyond. We need solutions like 100% clean electricity for our grid, cleaner fuels and electrification to power our transportation, and clean and energy savvy buildings where we work and live. With your help, we can accelerate the transition to a clean energy future.

For years, influential political figures, business and environmental leaders, activists and philanthropists, have come together for our spring fundraising events like our Climate Solutions Annual Breakfast. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the direction from our health professionals and elected leaders following the science, we made the decision to hold this event online rather than in person. Thanks to everyone who participated, and to those who made contributions.

Thanks so much to our generous sponsors and hosts!
