Path To 2030 Is The Focus Of Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit

Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit keynote Joan Fitzgerald speaker

The United States officially rejoined the Paris climate agreement in February and President Biden said tackling the climate crisis is among his highest priorities. So how is our region meeting the challenges of a changing climate? This week the 2021 Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit explores this topic. The theme of this year’s Summit from May 12 to 14 is "Accelerating Action: The Path to 2030."

This year's keynote speaker is climate policy expert Joan Fitzgerald, whose talk will focus on how cities can recover from COVID-19 equitably while making environmental advances. Green Umbrella is presenting the Summit with the City of Cincinnati and the Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit are Green Umbrella Executive Director Ryan Mooney-Bullock; Northeastern University Professor of Urban and Public Policy Joan Fitzgerald, Ph.D.; Groundwork Ohio River Valley Program Manager Sophie Revis; and Village of Silverton Village Manager Tom Carroll.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
