With Janet Cox and Mary Buxton. A presentation on the 30x30 plan of a powerful group of change makers. Want to join a group and do climate action after tUrn week? Here’s a great local option for all attendees in the state of California.
Janet Cox began her career in journalism and publishing, but before very long moved over to public policy and environmental communications. After many years designing and implementing public programs promoting water pollution prevention, she was laid off from her last “real job” in 2014 and turned to full-time volunteer work passing climate legislation in California. She has organized with Fossil Free California and 350 Silicon Valley, and now leads Climate Action California, a statewide grassroots group advocating for science-based legislative and policy solutions to the climate emergency we face.
Mary Buxton worked as a psychotherapist for 42 years until her retirement in 2017. Mary then started her "retirement career" as a climate and environmental advocate.
She has been the 30x 30 Task Force Coordinator with the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter for the past 3 years. 30x30 is an international, national and state campaign to conserve 30% of land and water by 2030.
Mary combines her work on the 30x30 campaign with her work as a Natural Resources team member with Climate Action California. Climate Action California seeks to resolve climate change with statewide legislative advocacy.Intrigued by the Santa Clara University tUrn conferences, Mary was excited to learn that this type of sustainability education was preparing our future leaders with the knowledge they need to create a sustainable future.
