October/November 2019


Hello Friends and Partners - 

In early October, I had the privilege of joining Mayor Durkan at the C40 Cities World Mayors Summit. Mayor Durkan met with fellow mayors, business leaders, and amazing youth climate leaders to discuss, brainstorm, and recommit to bold and aggressive action to address climate change. It was an amazing experience and both the Mayor and I came away inspired and hopeful for the future of global climate action. I continue to be so inspired by the growing numbers of youth who are leading the calls to action on climate every day and I eagerly look forward to working with them in helping shape Seattle’s climate friendly future.

 Thank you for your continued support and partnership, 

Jessica Finn Coven, Director
