Global Climate Action Summit

We’re beginning to plan the invitation-only ‘infrastructure event’ at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, CA, September 10-11, 2018.

  • We are co-leading, through the ‘Science to Action Community’, an official side event at the summit on creating climate-smart design and building principles for use by the architecture, engineering, and infrastructure communities

  • We’re also taking part in the official Science to Action day on Sept 11th. We’ll be presenting the results of the NY State-led climate advisory report, and possibly launching something brand new….stay tuned.
