Unusual Suspects: Resurgence, resilience and regeneration in the face of Climate Change

November 04, 2010

A conversation with community leaders about the experiences of their communities, as they propose and implement novel climate change interventions that challenge the technocratic alternatives produced by central policy players in government or business sectors.

Whether it's urban farming, renewable energy, or public health concerns, diverse individuals are stepping up and joining forces to strategize and optimize their creative potential in the face of climate change.

Will Allen, CEO, Growing Power, Inc., Dr. Michel Gelobter, Founder & CEO, Cooler, Inc., and Jihan Gearon, Native Energy Organizer, Indigenous Environmental Network will use their experiences to reflect on the possibilities and challenges of giving voice to these groups and of strategizing around climate change in ways that are often excluded from official policy and political conversations. From this perspective they are a veritable group of "unusual suspects", effectively broadening and challenging the prevailing policy discourse.
