A Conference on Hudson Valley Opportunities for Decarbonization, Environmental Justice, Sustainability and Resilience.
The next two years are a critical time for tackling climate change. New York’s groundbreaking Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act is being translated into state policies and programs, channeling billions of dollars into local economies and creating an estimated 210,000 net new jobs by 2030. Capturing these opportunities is an invitation to local creativity. Sustainable Hudson Valley, working with dozens of organizational partners, has published the Regional Climate Action Road Map and Tool Kit to identify the kinds of major projects that will make a difference: building local support for renewable energy, creating clean transportation hubs, dismantling the throw-away economy by investing in recycling- and reuse-based businesses, supporting regenerative agriculture and natural climate solutions like capturing carbon in soil. New York is not only developing policies to encourage these innovations; the state has committed itself to investing 35 – 40% of all resources in communities that have historically borne undue environmental and climate risks and burdens.
Join Sustainable Hudson Valley and collaborators for a discussion on the actions that we all need to take.
