Reconnect with fellow Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative (CRC) members for our Fall Members’ Networking Event. Our event will focus on how our region is responding to drought with perspectives from local agencies, regional organizations, and the state. Participants will then have an opportunity to share their own work and hear from other CRC members in breakout groups. Breakout groups will be organized around topic areas relevant to drought,climate action, and other adaptation activities. Following the virtual networking event will be an optional in-person happy hour to continue the discussions with practitioners in the Capital Region (location TBD).

Upcoming Event: CSUS & Renaissance Society Present Dr. Katherine Hayhoe

California State University at Sacramento (CSUS) and the Renaissance Society, in collaboration with diverse educational, environmental and faith-based organizations in the Sacramento region*, is proud to announce an exciting presentation by Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, one of the most renowned climate scientists of our time and a riviting speaker. In addition to being a world-class scientist, Dr. Hayhoe is a deeply religious person who strongly encourages members of all faiths to participate in stewarding our planet. She is an atmospheric scientist and the Political Science Endowed Professor in Public Policy at Texas Tech University, where she is Director of their Climate Science Center. She is also the founder and CEO of the scientific firm “ATMOS Research”, where they bridge the gap between scientists and stakeholders to provide relevant, state-of-the-art information on how climate change will affect our lives. This year, Dr. Hayhoe teamed up with Potential Energy, a nonprofit marketing firm, to launch Science Moms, a $10 million campaign to educate and
empower mothers to do something about climate change. She also co-wrote A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions, a book that untangles this complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. She is about to release another book in September entitled Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. She argues that when it comes to changing hearts and minds, facts are only one part of the equation. We need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action. Among Dr. Hayhoe’s numerous awards and accolades, she was named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2014.

Climate Action in the Capital Region

Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative Webinar: Climate Action in the Capital Region

 Wednesday, April 14, 2021, 1-2:30 PM 

The Mayors’ Commission on Climate Change developed a common vision and set of strategies for the Cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions, referred to as Carbon Zero, by 2045. This webinar will recap the Commission process and recommendations while providing a space for city staff to provide updates on each city’s current and planned climate action activities. 

We will also hear from and highlight additional jurisdictions and agencies across the Capital Region who are working towards their own ambitious climate goals. Sector experts from the Commission Committees will participate in a panel discussion on how the Capital Region climate efforts can serve as models and examine where the Capital Region is compared to other regions in CA in implementing climate goals.
