U.S. States Forge Onward: Keeping Climate Action a Priority
Path 3: Climate Initiatives and Policy
Under the Trump administration, the approach to climate action on the U.S. federal level is dramatically different from what it was a year ago, prompting many states to double down on their commitments to continue aggressively addressing climate change. Many have been vocal about their intent to forge onward with their climate initiatives, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and some have put forth a rallying cry to states to work collaboratively, especially in the absence of federal regulations. In this session, state representatives will discuss actions their respective states are taking now, what they plan for the future and how they are interacting with the new federal approach to climate action.
