Solar Austin Happy Hour: Climate Activist Panel
January 28 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Hosted by Solar Austin –
To kick off 2020, Solar Austin has gathered a panel of passionate activists and advocates who are working locally to lead the fight for climate action. From student protesters to grassroots organizers, this month’s speakers have made it their mission to speak out about renewable energy and environmental justice issues in Texas. Come and join us as we tackle the ever-daunting question: How can we reduce emissions quickly enough to avoid catastrophic climate change?
Despite Texas being the leading state in wind energy production and one of the top in solar energy, Texas is still the leading producer of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. When it comes actually kicking our fossil fuel habit, there’s a lot of work to be done. But new voices are joining the call for change and public support for climate action is growing.
The panel will include representatives from Sunrise Movement Austin, Students Fighting Climate Change, Austin DSA, 350 Austin, Extinction Rebellion, Austin Climate Coalition, and Sierra Club. Join us to hear what these groups are working on and how you can get involved to be part of the movement to save our planet.
