YPE Northeast – Sustainable Cities

October 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

YPE is  inviting representatives from each city’s Office of Sustainability for discussion and comparison of each city’s energy-focused sustainability plan and initiatives. All three cities have ambitious clean energy and sustainability goals but different demographics that will likely lead to unique and location-specific implementations. They also face distinctive regional and local challenges that impact the execution of these initiatives.

Hear from the individuals responsible for leading foundational changes in each of our cities through a virtual panel discussion on these critical issues, then continue the conversation through small groups with the panelists and conclude the night with some casual networking.

Moderator:

  • H.G. Chissell – Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Energy Group

Panelists:

  • Christine Knapp – Director, Office of Sustainability, City of Philadelphia
  • Susanne DesRoches, Deputy Director, Infrastructure + Energy, New York City Mayor’s Offices of Sustainability and Resiliency
  • Kat Eshel, Deputy Director of Climate and Environmental Planning, City of Boston Environment Department
