Climate Action Summit

2019Climate Action Summit#ClimateActionSummitPGH

The p4 Pittsburgh Climate Action Summit will bring together national and local climate experts, decision-makers, students, and business leaders to create a powerful partnership for meaningful change. Join author David Wallace-Wells, scientists Ray Najjar of Penn State and Jonathan Foley of Project Drawdown, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, and inspiring young climate activists in an interactive, movement building event. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has made it clear that we have only 10 short years to take rapid action to transform our economy and critical infrastructure in order to avert the worst consequences of climate change. We know that this region is a significant contributor to climate pollution and it is up to all of us to take serious, collective action now. In addition to hearing from our headlining speakers and panelists, we will have the opportunity for attendees to participate in one of five sector-specific workshops featuring leaders in the nonprofit, business, and government sectors who are making change now. Together we can help to solve the 21st Century's greatest challenge. Be part of the solution!
