SF Environment Launches Climate Action Plan (Livestream via TEDx)

TEDxCityofSanFrancisco presents Hope in a Heated Planet, a curation of TEDx talks and performances to inspire community action in the fight against climate change.

The City and County of San Francisco invites you to celebrate the launch of the City’s 2021 Climate Action Plan on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, from 5:30–7:00 p.m. PST.

TEDxCityofSanFrancisco is part of a global initiative, TEDx Countdown, which aims to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. This virtual event is free and open to all

The event will be hosted by the Director of the San Francisco Department of the Environment, Debbie Raphael, and will feature talks from Mayor London N. Breed, as well as local activists, youth, artists, and business leaders who will share their stories of hope and progress toward a healthier, more equitable San Francisco for all.

The theme of TEDxCityofSanFrancisco is Hope in a Heated Planet. As we witness the increased impacts of climate change it can be difficult to feel optimistic, but what we have is hope—hope in people, hope in solutions, and hope in our ability to take collective action. It’s action that gives rise to hope. Hope is a conviction that one can act to make things better. As Greta Thunberg says, “When we start to act, hope is everywhere.”
