The Climate Congress consisted of several workshops led by community leaders in non-profit and government work. Through these workshops, students and community members who care about the climate crisis discussed collaborative solutions to combat it on a local level.
By 2030, we must reduce our carbon emissions by half of what it was in 2010 to limit the dangerous effects of climate change. We believe that the only way to do that is through effective, local solutions. On February 29th, 2020, we gathered at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's campus center to discuss these solutions and how individuals can play a pivotal role in getting them passed.
