Story Body

Gov. Jay Inslee traveled to New York this week to participate in the United Nations Climate Summit, World Economic Forum and Climate Week. He met with national and international world leaders, community partners and youth climate activists to highlight how states are leading the nation on climate action, despite an absence of federal leadership and attempts by the Trump administration to roll back many environmental protections.

Inslee started the week Saturday when he joined the U.N. Youth Climate Summit Town Hall, where young people from all over the world shared their ideas, concerns and solutions.
