U.S. mayors and climate experts discuss climate action during COVID-19 and in the wake of the 2020 Presidential Election.


Join Climate Mayors and World Resources Institute as they host a discussion with leaders of the Climate Mayors network to discuss climate action needed at all levels of government during COVID-19 and what the future of climate action will look like in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.

This event is the fifth in the Climate Mayors National Dialogue on a Green and Equitable Recovery, a speaker series advocating for national leadership to prioritize recovery policies that are environmentally sustainable and socially just in the time of COVID-19, and will focus on the broader national climate conversation.

Participants Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh; New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell; Dan Lashof, Director of World Resources Institute for the United States; and other climate leaders will join moderator Justin Worland, TIME Magazine’s energy and environment reporter, to discuss how a federal government committed to enacting climate-forward policies can work in tandem with cities across the country to amplify and accelerate existing efforts.
