From September 19th – September 25th, the Tzu Chi Center is hosting the Holistic Climate Solutions Summit, a week-long convergence of the minds. From academics to activists, youth leaders to long-standing government officials, all walks of life are coming together this week for one mutual goal: developing the innovative solutions we need to tackle the climate crisis.
Join us for our episode on Sunday, September 25th, as we wrap up our Holistic Climate Solutions Summit, with Sarah Chu and Dallas Conyers, co-organizers of the event. Together with host Steve Chiu, they’ll reflect on the whole of the summit, the holistic climate solutions that emerged over its course, and what we can expect moving forward.
