The 50th anniversary of Earth Day will be marked by tens of thousands of events in every country in the world. Arizona Forward, Arizona State University, the City of Phoenix, Central Arizona Conservation Alliance, Arizona Sustainability Alliance and Green Living Magazine have come together for this milestone occasion to present EarthArizona 2020 on April 14, 2020.
EarthArizona 2020 is an all-day business forum with sessions and workshops designed to address important topics tailored to Arizona-specific climate change risks such as extreme heat, drought, declining air quality and impacts to human health. The forum will assess the status of Arizona today, evaluate strategies and determine action steps for the future.
Now is the time to take climate action. Arizona is poised to take a proactive approach to potential climate change risks. Stakeholders agree that major changes can take place at the local-level. All of us can play a role: large and small business, municipalities, state government, nonprofits, educational institutions,policy makers and others. The next generation is relying on us to rise to the challenge to secure Arizona's economic future and quality of life.
