VERGE 19: Welcoming Remarks

February 12, 2020

GreenBiz Vice President and VERGE Executive Director, Shana Rappaport, welcomes VERGE 19 participants to the event with a clean economy call to action and surprise performance by The Seastars.

“This isn’t just about avoiding an ecological and economic crisis,” Rappaport says. “It’s about helping a future unfold that has the potential to be more prosperous for all people and all life than it’s ever been.”

Following Rappaport’s opening remarks and invitation to transform ambition into action, The Seastars and Cello Joe join her on stage for a special performance of their song, Carbon Needs a Price Tag, to sing California Governor Gavin Newsom on stage.
