"Thanks again for all that you and your team do for our region. It is quite difficult to move the needle on an issue that on its face for so many seems quite distant but you are indeed moving that needle."

The coastline images featured in the San Diego Climate Summit materials were taken by local photographer Will Holder. He captures our iconic beaches from the perspective of the ocean, capturing the urgency of sea level rise and extreme storm flooding.

The Sunset Reception following the Summit was accompanied by the music of Leah Keane. As attendees networked, she performed original songs and covers capturing the human spirit. She unveiled "A Garden Told Me", her new song that will be released April 26th.
