Let’s Bridge Solutions for Climate Change

Our 2024 Climate CorrectionTM conference enhances discoveries by bringing together experts from various disciplines to generate innovative results

By Thais Lopez Vogel

As VoLo Foundation sails through its tenth year of work, the most profound insight I have gained is the power of joining forces to strive for the greater good. That is why I celebrate the motto for our 2024 Climate Correction™️ Conference: “Bridging Solutions, Igniting Change.”

This is our sixth Climate CorrectionTM meeting, and undoubtedly, it is the pinnacle moment for our organization. It brings people from all around the country and abroad, to demonstrate how unity can ignite change.

The conference, set to take place on March 8th, 2024, in Orlando, is far more than just a gathering of experts and policymakers. It is a platform where cross-disciplinary efforts converge to show an exciting blend of expertise bringing feasible solutions and calling for collective action.

What significance does this hold? Simply put, considering that climate change impacts every aspect of modern life, from the economy to health, makes it imperative for us to transition to a clean, more circular economy cost-effectively and equitably.

Coping with the reconstruction after extreme weather catastrophes entails billions of dollars for taxpayers. And the frequency of these phenomena increases as temperatures rise globally.

As of September 28th, 2023, a total of $1 billion in public aid has been allocated to Florida communities in response to the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian, according to the Florida Government website.

The Environmental Protection Agency states that air pollution can increase the risk of heart attacks for older adults, especially those who are diabetic or obese. It can worsen conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD).

Experiencing floods, hurricanes, droughts, and wildfires can lead to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. High temperatures can prolong allergy seasons and increase respiratory illnesses, impacting children.

We have worked to bring together experts from diverse disciplines, including representatives from organizations such as the North America Climate Group, Environmental Defense Fund, Huella Zero, The Nature Conservancy, WWF-Food Waste Warriors, and City of Orlando, among others.

The analysis of all data confirms the timeliness of our gathering. We have crafted a dynamic event dedicated to propelling innovative responses. Not only will data-driven solutions be presented, but we will also emphasize the importance of cooperative action in developing comprehensive strategies to combat climate change.

This year, we are particularly proud to partner with the University of Central Florida to present an Art Expo day on March 7th, 2024, displaying artists’ perspectives on solutions to the climate crisis. They harness the power of art as a compelling instrument for environmental activism.

Art has the unique ability to inspire people at an emotional level, complementing the data-driven approaches to be discussed during the conference.

An opportunity to learn, collaborate, and contribute to shaping a better future for our children is approaching. By creating together, sharing knowledge, and taking proactive measures, we can drive the necessary change to mitigate the impacts of climate change and ensure a sustainable planet for future generations.
