President Biden arrived in Los Angeles Wednesday for the Ninth Summit of the Americas. The summit is the week of June 6 to 10 with a focus on “Building a Sustainable, Resilient and Equitable Future,” for the atmosphere. The Ninth Summit marks the first time the United States has hosted the event since the inaugural meeting in Miami in 1994.
Some of the highlights of the Summit of America include, clean energy, climate crisis and how public and private sectors can work together to solve large environmental problems. Similar climate-crisis discussions will be held at the summit, with an emphasis on increasing green jobs across the region and building a stronger network of renewable energy.
