2015 MomentUs Leadership Summit: Creating a Tipping Point for Climate Solutions

By path2positive

Where can you find a bishop, a doctor, and a mayor talking about climate change, and collaborating on ways to inspire Americans and faith communities on solutions? The Path to Positive 2015 MomentUs Leadership Summit, that's where!

How often do 200 leaders from across industries, denominations and the nation have a chance to work together on the world’s biggest challenge? Heads of religious denominations, public health associations, cities, universities, foundations, government, and more will join the Summit to work within and across sectors to galvanize leadership on climate change solutions. With so many opportunities for leadership in 2015 (the Pope's upcoming encyclical, COP 21 Paris, and many others), now is the time for us to chart plans for individual and collective impact.  

It's about all of us, now, creating a tipping point for meaningful climate solutions.

Here are some of the eminent speakers who will be participating (more will be announced soon):  

 

  • Dr. Norman Anderson, CEO, American Psychological Association 
  • Dr. Carlton Brown, President, Clark Atlanta University
  • Katherine Di Matteo, Executive Director, Sustainable Food Trade Assn.
  • Jay Faison, Managing Partner, ClearPath Foundation 
  • Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
