“Hot Matters: Climate in Crisis” Seminar

Sunday, February 16 - 2:00 PM

On Sunday, February 16, 2020 the Charlottesville Area League of Women Voters is holding a seminar called “Hot Matters: Climate in Crisis” from 2:00 to 3:30 pm at CitySpace on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall.

Global warming is placing our planet in peril. But what specific actions can individuals, as well as our community, take to confront climate change? Expert panelists leading this seminar will share effective actions in day-to-day activities and provide priorities on which to focus. Featured panelists are:

  •  Cheryl Gomez, UVA Facilities Management, Director of Operations
  •  Susan Kruse, Executive Director of the Charlottesville Climate Collaborative
  •  Kristel Riddervold, City of Charlottesville Environmental Sustainability Manager
  •  Kristie Smith, Virginia Conservation Network Policy & Campaigns Manager - Energy & Transportation

The public is invited to bring questions for the panelists and engage in this important climate crisis discussion.

This event is free and parking space is available in the adjacent Market Street parking garage. Further event information can be accessed on the League's website at www.lwv-cva.org.

Founded in 1920, the League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. We look forward to continuing our mission with this event.
