Business executives, entrepreneurs, climate scientists, and students from across the country will converge in Asheville this spring for Climate City Expo 2019, a conference that explores innovative climate solutions and business opportunities.

Climate City Expo (CCx) 2019 is a project of The Collider, a nonprofit innovation center in Asheville, N.C. that empowers climate data entrepreneurs who help communities and economies become resilient to a changing climate. Held March 29 – April 7, 2019, CCx 2019 is a 10-day celebration of Asheville’s creativity and commitment to climate change awareness and action, featuring seven tracks of programming: Business, NextGen, Luminaries, Arts, Eats, Learn, and Faith. Katharine K. Wilkinson, VP of Communication & Engagement at Project Drawdown, is part of the CCx: Luminary track, where the public will hear from visionary leaders who have made environmental action and a commitment to science lifelong callings.    

Katharine K. Wilkinson is a writer, speaker, and strategist whose work aims to explore, amplify, and invigorate action to address climate change. She is VP of Communication & Engagement at Project Drawdown, where she is advancing the organization's message, reach, and influence around the world.
