    Technology, Markets and Bipartisanship: The Future of Climate Action

    An EarthX Young Professionals Virtual Event


    We're living in partisan times, but climate change won't wait for the next election cycle. More and more young people are looking beyond traditional political boundaries for solutions to the environmental problems facing us all. These solutions must reach across industries, parties and ideological divides to achieve meaningful change.

    Join us Tuesday, July 21, at 12:00 p.m. CDT for a special lunchtime conversation with Benji Backer, president of the American Conservation Coalition. Benji will talk about his politically conservative approach to environmental activism and share his vision for meeting head on the technological and financial challenges facing climate stewardship today.

    Time: Tuesday, July 21, 12:00 p.m. CDT
