Alexis Abramson Speaks to Local Youth at The City Club of Cleveland

Alexis Abramson, Director of GLEI, participated on a Youth Forum Council panel at the City Club of Cleveland to discuss energy innovation in Northeast Ohio. Speaking to a room of students from around the region, the panelists discussed the future of energy in Ohio and how local youth can take action to improve our energy future. Dr. Abramson emphasized the importance of both energy policy and technology and stressed the power of knowledge in advancing energy innovation. “Being an informed citizen about understanding the energy landscape, understanding what does climate change really mean, what does air pollution really mean for my community...being an educated consumer, citizen, parent, daughter, son, is really important.”

 

Dr. Abramson was joined on the council by Willa Evans, Chair of the Civil Rights Committee, United Steelworkers Local 979, Beth Nagusky, Director of Sustainable Development, Lake Erie Development Corporation, and Anand Natarajan, Energy Manager with the City of Cleveland.
