SAN DIEGO – Bridging the debate and often-cited challenges between policymakers, business leaders, environmentalists and climate scientists, Climate Education Partners (San Diego Region) is releasing a new website (sandiego.edu/2050) that connects the work of local scientists with regional leaders, working hand-in-hand on efforts to manage the impacts from the region’s changing climate.
The website includes science-based information related to the impacts of climate change affecting the San Diego region linked with a wide range of practical opportunities for local leaders to explore. Notable civic leaders featured include City of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, San Diego Convention Center President and CEO Carol Wallace, Port of San Diego Commissioner Rafael Castellanos and San Diego County Farm Bureau President Julie Walker.
The website is a companion project to the first-of-its-kind report, “San Diego, 2050 Is Calling. How Will We Answer?” released last year by Climate Education Partners and The San Diego Foundation.
To download the report—as well as access more information, research and a wide range of options for community leaders to consider—visit sandiego.edu/2050.
