Climate Mayoral Forum presented by Green Philly

April 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Climate Mayoral Forum presented by Green Philly

What do Philadelphia mayoral candidates for office think about climate change? How will they prioritize policy and budget to address the climate crisis during their time as mayor? How will it affect your vote for the primary in May and in November?

The Climate Mayoral Forum presented by Green Philly is the second in a series of two environmentally-focused mayoral candidate forums taking place this Spring, and will be held on April 4th. The Climate Mayoral Forum presented by Green Philly along with a coalition of sustainability partners and will focus on discussing climate, clean energy, a circular economy, green businesses and more.

The first forum, held on March 29th and hosted by the Green Living Plan coalition of environmental nonprofits and community groups, will focus on neighborhood-based environmental solutions to pressing quality-of-life challenges. Both forums will be held at the Academy of Natural Sciences. There will be an audience question and answer portion at both forums.
