Western Colorado Climate Challenge 2015

Paonia, Colorado
Colorado can become a global leader in solving America’s climate crisis, and the Western Slope is uniquely situated to play a large role in that effort. The Western Colorado Climate Challenge and Solar Fair will bring together some of the regions’ leading organizations, businesses and a diversity of stakeholders and experts ready to roll up our sleeves and develop action steps to get the job done.

This is no ordinary conference. It’s a hands-on-working conference for those who want to make real change, sooner rather than later, while having some fun along the way. Ultimately, everyone attending will take away a plan and a personal pledge to work toward being carbon neutral by 2020 and to taking the steps to reduce water consumption by 50%.
