About This Event

Join RMI and TACAW to connect local action to national climate policy in a nonpartisan conversation about progress in 2024. On the international stage, COP29 will return to a petrostate in Azerbaijan while dozens of countries are facing shifting climate policy priorities. Back at home in the United States and the Roaring Fork Valley, this year will also shape crucial climate and energy policies to protect against catastrophic climate change. Join national, Colorado, and Aspen climate champions looking at the role of policy across all levels of engagement.

The doors at TACAW open at 6 p.m. with hosted light appetizers and drinks, and the 60-minute panel conversation begins at 7 p.m. There will be time for an audience Q&A after the formal program.
