This convening will bring together leadership from several state, national and international foundations who have funded initiatives that advance economic opportunity and environmental wellbeing, promote a just transition, and could be either replicated elsewhere in the country or scaled up under a Green New Deal. We will explore what they are learning, how they have overcome challenges, and what has had the most positive impact. You’ll also learn how they’re working in partnership across organizations and issue-areas to accomplished shared goals.
