Across the globe, communities are grappling with unprecedented challenges of extreme weather events and record-breaking natural disasters. From rising sea levels to ecological disruptions impacting communities worldwide, environmental challenges often transcend international borders and cannot be successfully addressed by one nation alone. Add the immense socio-economic costs of these crises and the urgency for innovative, collaborative solutions has never been greater.

Join Meridian for an exclusive program featuring The Honorable Jane Nishida, Assistant Administrator for International and Tribal Affairs at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has been a long-standing leader in addressing the most intractable environmental and public health concerns, working closely with foreign governments and international organizations to implement the U.S. climate and environmental agenda toward achieving a net-zero emission, resilient future. Assistant Administrator Nishida will highlight the Biden administration’s comprehensive approach for climate and environmental stewardship and building a green economy. Key topics will include the strategic integration of public-private partnerships and the promotion of bilateral and multilateral cooperation. Learn how the EPA’s initiatives align with global efforts to tackle the climate crisis, and how environmental stewardship can shape a more resilient and sustainable future for all.
