The conference is for changemakers, lawmakers, movement makers and business leaders who are actively implementing climate change and sustainability solutions through the tri-county region of Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. Come meet women who are shaping the future of our communities and the planet.
The speaker lineup is incredible and includes Lisa Pike Sheehy, VP of Environmental Activism at Patagonia, Maimune Sayed, Executive Director of EMERGE California, Sarah Newkirk, Senior Coastal Project Director for The Nature Conservancy, and Laurel Hunt, Secretary of Mediterranean Climate Change Consortium. Your ticket will include a VIP reception with Naomi Klein, well-known author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything.
