Welcome Letter from our Board President
Dorothy A. Savarese
Welcome to It’s Time for Climate Collaboration, a major event featuring climate change leaders Bill McKibben, Søren Hermansen and Melissa Hoffer. This is an extraordinary one-night-only, in-person opportunity to hear from these experts. This is a timely event because the federal and state governments and many organizations on Cape Cod are focused on being part of efforts to address climate change and build local resilience.
It’s also timely because the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative is embarking on the next chapter of its mission of acting as a catalyst for progress by convening the relevant people and organizations around select climate topics. These topics include adaptation, resilience and mitigation to provide facilitation and strategic support in the development of cohesive, coherent and coordinated vision, strategies and actions. With organizations aligned and plans coordinated, the Collaborative will also advocate for the policies and funding to support progress, as well as to communicate and promote these initiatives through our many communication channels . Attendees at this special event have the opportunity to get energized, be informed, hear a major success story and think about what can come next for our region and what part they can play.
Thank you for attending this once-in-a-lifetime convening of major climate change leaders —and for your overall support of the Collaborative. We are looking forward eagerly to an incredible evening, and are thrilled that you are a part of it!
