California is the fifth largest economy in the world. It is also on the front lines of climate crisis with wildfires, droughts, and extreme weather. Many of the boldest solutions to mitigate climate change globally are also being developed in California. Leading the way requires a comprehensive strategic alignment of key decision makers, resource allocation, and effective implementation of climate solutions within and beyond the 2030 time-frame. With innovative thought, green jobs, and circular economic investment, California can become a beacon of hope for the world with its transformative vision in addressing the greatest existential crisis facing humanity.

The world is in a climate emergency and needs to aggressively adhere to 2030 30×30 SDG. Inter-governmental pledges announced at UN COP summits are moving too slowly. There need to be a more responsible and agile way to turn pledges into actions. This inclusive summit with key policy and decision makers, business leaders, scientists, and NGOs is aimed at developing awareness to action strategies.
