7:05 - 8:00 Featured Session: Multisolving for Climate Change with Coleen O'Connell

Multisolving (v.): Searching for systemic solutions that protect the climate while improving health, equity and well-being.

This emerging concept from Climate Interactive gives us a framework for working holistically to address issues while solving for climate change at the same time. You will leave this workshop with a framework for designing projects that multisolve or evaluating to improve a project you already are doing.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this important meeting!
