About the event

Despite ever more stark warnings from climate scientists, politicians globally have been very slow to tackle global warming. The recent UN climate talks in Durban, South Africa were no exception. What are the reasons for international inaction? Can cities like Davis demonstrate how strategic investment in a low-carbon future can create healthy, vibrant communities? How can we get involved in the Cool California city challenge to become one of the “coolest” cities in California?

The event will be a zero-waste event. I-house is located at 10 College Park, Davis 95616
