Emerald Keepers is hosting a Community Convening – the first of its kind – to bring together all sectors of Coronado for a conversation about the future of Coronado. Sustainability and climate impacts will be addressed at the October 14th invitation-only event at the Nautilus Room. This Convening of local leaders and thinkers will be a day of learning and exploring with expert speakers, panelists, and round-table discussions to seek a sustainable future for Coronado.

The keynote speaker is The Honorable Tim Gallaudet, PhD, Rear Admiral, US Navy (retired), CEO of Ocean STL Consulting; former Acting Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); former Acting Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere, and the Oceanographer of the U.S. Navy.

Panelists include city innovation, transportation, and electrification experts.

The goal: create a catalyst to collaboratively explore and develop innovative, viable solutions to facilitate climate resilience and sustainable practices. Findings and recommendations from the event will be compiled and shared with the community.
