Solomon Goldstein-Rose

Member, Board of Advisors

Solomon Goldstein-Rose has been a climate activist since age 11. His education in engineering and public policy gave him a unique perspective on the intersection of what physically has to happen to solve climate change and what approaches might actually make it happen. Solomon ran for the Massachusetts state legislature at age 22 and got elected on a platform focused on climate change. During his term he passed several small energy and education policies and created local initiatives for civic education and engagement. In 2018 he canceled his campaign for re-election so he could work full-time on climate change at the national and global levels.

His outreach and analysis turned into the book, The 100% Solution. More recently Solomon has given a TED Talk and other presentations about climate change solutions. He also runs Virya, LLC, an impact investing project to accelerate underfunded technologies.

Solomon lives in Montague, MA, and makes time for hiking, farming, and directing children’s theater.
