Join us the evening of June 29 for a WISE fireside chat with
Kelly Shultz of Bloomberg Philanthropies and Dale Bryk of Natural Resources
These urban sustainability leaders will
discuss opportunities and challenges of pursuing climate goals from national
and international perspectives. Bryk, Chief Planning and Integration Officer at
Natural Resources Defense Council and 2015 WISE speaker on our Clean Energy
Innovation panel, will lead the dialogue with Shultz, of the Environment
Team at Bloomberg Philanthropies.
Together they will explore how cities are adapting to the changing
climate and mitigating further warming by adopting advanced technology and
innovative policies. Shultz will discuss Bloomberg Philanthropies’ sustainable
cities initiatives, including their collaborations with the Compact of Mayors,
C40, and the City Energy Project.
Incorporating her industry expertise and
audience questions, Bryk will guide the conversation around how cities transform their sustainability
strategies by encouraging community
engagement, education, and financing opportunities.
