Acterra Fall 2017 Lecture Series

November 2, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet
Carl Pope, Inside Straight Strategies

Former chairman of the Sierra Club and co-author of the new book, Climate of Hope, Carl Pope will present an evening of environmental insights and inspiration. Climate of Hope, a collaborative effort between Pope and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, elicits hope and motivation regarding the power of cities, and the major role they play in our nation’s fight against climate change. Pope is now the principal advisor at Inside Straight Strategies, focusing on the links between sustainability and economic development, and serves as a senior climate advisor to Bloomberg.


Acterra’s Public Lecture Series features prominent voices from throughout the environmental sector, addressing urgent issues that face region and our planet. With series in both fall and spring, we offer many opportunities to learn about and discuss environmental issues with like-minded community members.

Our lectures take place in and around the Palo Alto area, and are often hosted by corporate partners like Microsoft, Facebook, and LinkedIn. They are open to the public, and cost $10 to attend. For an annual membership starting at $40, you can get free access to our public lecture series for one year.

We invite you to join us for our Fall 2017 series. All of our speakers and topics are below. Reserve your seats, as these events fill up quickly. We look forward to seeing you there!
