In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, our society has many tough decisions to make. What we do in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will either send us forward or backwards in addressing the climate crisis. Our work in addressing the climate crisis has taught us to think globally, and act locally. That’s why we are hosting a series of localized online forums to discuss the intersections between the climate and COVID crises; and potential local solutions that protect lives- both by addressing the pandemic, and transitioning to an equitable and just clean energy economy. Together, we can help our elected leaders in Vancouver and Clark County respond effectively to the pandemic, and flatten the curve for both disease and climate change.
