Carl Pope, the Saint Louis Climate Summit’s keynote speaker, had worked at the Sierra Club for nearly thirty years before stepping down as its Executive Director in 2012. Pope is a veteran environmental leader and the coauthor of the 2017 New York Times bestselling-book, Climate of Hope: How Cities, Businesses, and Citizens Can Save the Planet.

Pope is the principal adviser at Inside Straight Strategies, which focuses on the links between sustainability and economic development. He serves as a senior climate adviser to Michael Bloomberg, entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City. The author of three books, he regularly writes for Bloomberg View and The Huffington Post.

Coauthored by Bloomberg, Climate of Hope aims to begin a new conversation on climate change that will spur bolder actions by cities, businesses, and citizens.

The book’s message is central to the themes of the Saint Louis Climate Summit. “In a time when national leadership seems bent on denying the facts of climate change and has failed to plan for its likely consequences, smaller-scale efforts will achieve the desired results, by empowering cities, regions, businesses, and citizens to accelerate the progress they are already making on their own,” writes Pope. The full keynote session is in development with additional speakers and presentations planned.

Tickets can be purchased at, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster outlets, and the Chaifetz Arena Box Office.

The Saint Louis Climate Summit is dedicated to working to fulfill Pope Francis’ call to unite in defense of our common home. Saint Louis University is proudly hosting the summit as part of its bicentennial anniversary celebration.
