June 29, 2020, 4:00-7:30 PM

We asked students at the University Climate Change Summit at Sacramento State to share their vision for a sustainable future in Sacramento and West Sacramento.

Here’s what they shared with us:

Mayor Darrell Steinberg, City of Sacramento

“By working together, we can accelerate and shape the transition to a clean energy economy that’s already occurring to ensure that it benefits our local businesses and residents. We can strengthen Sacramento’s position as a hub for investment in clean technologies and promote social equity and economic prosperity for all.”

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, City of West Sacramento

“The City of West Sacramento is partnering with the City of Sacramento on this effort to provide input and feedback on climate policies that can not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions but promote our shared goals for equitable mobility and sustainable communities. We look forward to adding our perspective to this collective effort, resulting in strategies that can have a truly regional impact.”

Priority Sectors

To inform the work of the Commission, several Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) have been established, focusing on Built Environment, Mobility, and Community Health & Resiliency, as well as a new TAC on Finance. Each TAC, comprised of technical experts and community leaders, will develop and present recommendations for the Commission to consider. In addition to the TACs, a series of Equity and Business Roundtables will be conducted to support the Commission in its objective to advance social equity and economic prosperity.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for making this important effort possible.
