EarthX Young Professionals (YPX) would like to invite you to join our friends at Meridian Young Professionals for an online roundtable on climate, featuring Justin Worland, TIME Magazine correspondent on energy, sustainability and the environment.

Justin’s latest piece, “2020 Is Our Last, Best Chance to Save the Planet,” is the July 20 TIME Magazine cover story and highlights the paramount significance of this year in the global fight against climate change, especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
