2021 Bay Area Climate Forum,
Tuesday 9 March 2021
The Hamilton-Burlington Bay Area can be a thriving, net zero carbon community by 2050. This requires an all-hands-on-deck approach to transforming how we live, how we move, how we build and renovate, and how we power industry. It matters how we communicate the changes necessary to lower our greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why, on March 9th, 2021, more than 600 people from across Hamilton and Burlington registered for “Around the Kitchen Table” to learn how to have better climate conversations. Keynote Katharine Hayhoe and our panel of experts shared their expertise on how we can build bridges with others to support climate action across our region. If you missed the live event, you can view a recording below.
