Midwest Climate Summit Kickoff
10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Moms Clean Air Force National Field Director Heather McTeer Toney will speak on outreach and engagement as part of the kickoff event for the 2020 Midwest Climate Summit.
This year’s virtual Midwest Climate Summit is a two-part event, featuring a series of virtual keynotes and workshops in Fall 2020 (the Think Tank) that will set the stage for a recognition of the new commitments and increased ambition of Summit partner organizations in Spring 2021 (the Summit). The Summit partners recognize that the Midwest has the potential to play an outsize role in the coming critical decade by lowering emissions, creating a thriving green economy, and ensuring a just and equitable transition that does not leave any of our rural, suburban, urban, and indigenous communities behind, and they are dedicated to accelerating action in four interrelated areas: climate action, outreach & engagement, science & research, and teaching & education.
