Climate action at a state level: two upcoming events

 Two upcoming events on September 21  for Climate Week. The first will be on the oceans/climate nexus, and the second will profile state action on climate generally. Sen. Carlyle will be talking about Washington's SB 5126. Feel free to register and share with your networks if you're interested!

Tuesday, September 21: 11:00 - 12:00 ET

In concert with federal partners, U.S. states are demonstrating the kinds of local actions, policy integration and regional cooperation that are needed at a global scale to mobilize ambitious and urgent actions for reducing GHG emissions and helping communities and industries build resilience to climate-ocean change. As drivers of local and regional strategies, U.S. states are helping to integrate and operationalize the climate-ocean nexus across federal and state policy landscapes. This event is hosted by NCEL, OA Alliance, Ocean Conservancy, and the Seattle Aquarium.

Tuesday, September 21: 12:00 - 1:00 ET

States have significant power to direct their own climate action. Join the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators for a panel on how US states are taking bold actions to meet Paris Agreement goals while addressing systemic inequities. State legislators from Colorado, North Carolina, Oregon, and Washington will discuss how they are leading the transition to a clean energy economy, and what lessons there may be for other states and the federal government.
