As someone new to the Climate Collaborative, I found the depth, breadth and diversity of the conference inspirational and mind-blowing.
On Friday, October 23, 2020, the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative hosted its third annual and first virtual Net Zero conference. Its goal was to engage, educate, inspire, and mobilize businesses, nonprofits, institutions and citizens to kick-start a robust, just, and equitable economic recovery while moving the region toward a carbon-free future.
With speakers from around the region, state and country presenting a rich agenda, Net Zero 2020 showcased economic programs, clean energy impacts, jobs, training, and entrepreneurial opportunities for growth and activism. The conference was offered at no cost to participants thanks to the generosity of event sponsors and patrons.
