The Appalachian region of the United States has long been known for coal production, but it is now becoming a hotspot for environmental innovation. This is not just an environmental imperative but also an economic one, as innovation creates jobs, growth, and other opportunities where they are sorely needed. In this panel, a variety of innovators will discuss how to harness private capital for climate action and develop projects that not only benefit our environment, but also invest in communities getting left behind.
Opening remarks: Former Governor Phil Bredesen
Moderator: Dr. Daniel Carter, Sewanee: University of the South
