Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is scheduled to be among four U.S. mayors participating in a panel discussion Wednesday at an environmental conference in San Francisco showcasing city leadership on climate action.
The discussion titled “U.S. Mayors Leading the Way” will be part of Cities4Climate: The Future is Us, which will emphasize the innovative work cities are doing to improve air quality and build healthier, more resilient and equitable communities.
The other mayors who will be on the panel are Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto.
The conference is co-hosted by C40 Cities, The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy and the city of San Francisco. C40 Cities is a network of the world’s largest cities committed to addressing climate change. Its chair is Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, who visited Los Angeles Monday and Tuesday and joined Garcetti at a forum on clean transportation at Los Angeles City Hall Tuesday.
Garcetti is also scheduled to speak Friday at the Global Climate Action Summit, also in San Francisco, discussing “The Clean Transportation Revolution.”
The trip to San Francisco is Garcetti’s second out of the Southland in two weeks. He was in Ohio last week for a series of political events.
