Each week we share the stories that shouldn’t be missed. Local climate leaders, the latest in community climate action, and new climate research are all featured to highlight the good news coming out of cities. These are the top stories of the past week:
Nearly 275 cities (as well as a dozen states and a multitude of businesses and universities) have pledged to move forward with the commitments of the Paris Agreement, regardless of Trump’s decision to withdraw.
CLIMATE DAY LA
We’re very excited about the second annual Climate Day LA on June 27. Presented by ecoAmerica, Climate Resolve, KCRW, FORM, and IHEARTCOMIX in support of our Path to Positive LA initiative, this full-day event is designed to both celebrate and inspire local climate leadership. The day begins with a free conference featuring interactive panels with rising and established leaders, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Jackie Dupont-Walker of the AME Church, and NextGen Climate’s Tom Steyer. Next is a sunset benefit gala with an exclusive performance by award-winning musical artist Moby, followed by an evening concert featuring musical guests Neon Indian and Weyes Blood.
