8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Plenary Session – America’s Infrastructure Deficit

In the wake of extreme weather events like super storms, flooding, droughts and wildfires, it’s more apparent than ever that America’s infrastructure—the basic systems we rely on every day for energy, communications, transportation, and water—are not prepared to withstand the impacts of climate change. This plenary explores the nation’s infrastructure deficit and discusses federal, state and local policy solutions that will address climate change, prepare our communities, and create quality jobs across the economy.

12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Plenary Session – Infrastructure, Climate Change and Jobs in the 21st Century

Rebuilding America’s infrastructure presents many challenges, but also brings great opportunity. How do we rebuild our basic systems so that they are more resilient to the severe weather that climate change fuels? What industries and sectors stand to gain the most in the form of jobs and economic development? How can we ensure that the components of these new infrastructure systems are made in America? And how do we ensure that they jobs created are quality family-sustaining jobs?

8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Plenary Session – Building Climate Resilient Communities

Superstorm Sandy caused massive damage to our basic systems in the Northeast, demonstrating that our infrastructure is not built to withstand the impacts of a changing climate. With the President’s Climate Action Plan – and efforts to reduce carbon emissions from power plants – underway, how do we effectively reduce carbon pollution and rebuild our systems to be climate resilient? And as we build more climate resilient communities, how do we create and maintain jobs and economic growth at the same time?
