This Week in Communities & Climate – June 24-30

By path2positive

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:

Climate Day LA

This week we had an incredible turnout at Climate Day LA, where mayors, community, health, religious, business and higher education leaders inspired action for climate solutions. Check out Climate Resolve’s great recap.

In our weekly blog, we continued to highlight leaders who attended and spoke at Climate Day LA. This week we turned to the work of Araceli Campos, Executive Director of the Miguel Contreras Foundation.
