Michigan Climate and Clean Energy Summit Returns In-Person in Traverse City
Impacts of climate change were further discussed here in northern Michigan.
The Michigan Climate and Clean Energy Summit happened Thursday at the Botanic Garden in Traverse City. This comes after only being virtual the past two years due to COVID.
It featured multiple keynote speakers including an interdisciplinary climate scientist and climate justice activist. They say their goal is to unite Michigan in the fight for cleaner air and environment.
“The work is done by real people and their communities every single day and again, our whole theme today is to energize and connect them and let us know how to support the networks across the state,” Denise Keele, Michigan Climate Action Network said.
“We definitely have to go meet people where they are. At their community centers, at their churches. Make it accessible for them,” Marnese Jackson, Midwest Building Decarbonization Coalition said.
Climate Summits are expected to keep meeting in person annually statewide.
