Join us for the 12th annual Sustain Dane Summit on Thursday, December 3, 2020.
This year our theme is Decade to Deliver. 2020 is the beginning of a decade where we must accelerate our actions to deliver results on holistic sustainability: a healthy environment, a just economy, and social wellbeing for all. Our program of meaningful speakers and conversations with participants will focus on global solutions and local actions we can take to create a more thriving, equitable, and resilient community.
Crystal Chissell | Vice President of Operations and Engagement, Project Drawdown
Project Drawdown is the world’s leading resource for climate solutions. Crystal’s presentation will include:
- Drawdown’s 2020 update on their body of research that seeks to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.
- Stories about implementation of solutions from communities around the world.
- Her personal experience with social justice and equity in the climate movement.
- Discussion among participants about actions in our sphere of influence in a post-keynote workshop.
Delivering on Climate, Health & Equity in Our Region
This moderated panel of local leaders will discuss the intersection of climate, health, and equity and share how their work is shaping a thriving and resilient community for all in the decade ahead.
