Thank you to those who submitted amazing Pecha Kucha Presentations to show the community how you are contributing to the solution!

The role of Sustainable Works at the Climate Action Santa Monica Summit was to invite the community to submit presentations on what climate action they have taken or what climate action they think the city should take. The presentations had to be in a "Pecha Kucha" format. Pecha Kucha was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds for a total of 6 min and 40 sec.
