The National Building Museum hosted an installment of Climate ABC (Action/Building/Community), a new signature series focusing on three essential aspects to addressing climate change: Actions by individuals, businesses, non-profits, policy makers, and civic entities; Building — examples of both physical structures and landscapes, as well as coalitions of stakeholders; and Communities at every scale that are working to slow climate change.

Watch the recording to learn how the intersection of industry, government, and the public – how they influence each other, where/how the public can get involved to improve outcomes – can lead to productive climate action. The panelists, including the Hub’s Theresa Backhus, discussed the need for cooperation between these three stakeholders to lead to the migration of actions from voluntary to standard to required.
