Candidates participating in the Conversation
Did you know that despite our best efforts, Seattle's greenhouse gas emissions have gone up since 2018? Did you know that 70% of all emissions come from cities? So YES it does matter that Seattle meet its 2030 Climate Goals.
For background, see this presentation from Seattle's Office of Sustainability and Environment on how Seattle is doing on meeting its climate goals.
This virtual event is brought to you by four grassroots organizations working to elevate climate and environmental justice in this year's mayoral campaigns.
