⚡Community Shoutouts: Lightning Talks @ PNW Climate Week!
All of PNW Climate Week was an absolute blast, and certainly no exception was the Lightning Talks event hosted by Jacob Caggiano (The Climate Tech Handbook) and Nancy Wang (Work on Climate). We heard from amazing speakers on a variety of topics ranging from climate activism to sustainable fleet operations to climate policy and risk to how micro-organisms can play a role in climate solutions, and more. An educational and inspiring evening all around!
