An urgent need exists to inform, engage and mobilize the public about the environmental crisis. The natural environment that sustains human life is being destroyed. Only 12 years remain before wide-scale and irreversible damage is done, says the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The world is changing at an exponential pace and is at a turning point. If we do not shift to sustainable business practices and personal lifestyles, many people will be further imperiled by: drought, flooding, extreme heat and increased poverty in the immediate future.
Enormous commitments are needed for business, government, non-profits and us all to overcome this challenge.
Two very different aspects of the climate crisis will be discussed in this group: methods to mitigate existing and additional damage, but also the social-entrepreneurial and business opportunity aspects of what the World Economics Forum says is the greatest business opportunity in human history, the transfer from fossil fuels to renewable sources.
This Meetup is brought to you by Innovate Pasadena, COMMUNITY 2.0 & Energy Advisor Hub.
