Loyola Cancels Climate Change Conference 

As increased coronavirus (COVID-19) incidents are reported internationally and in the United States, Loyola University Chicago has made the decision to cancel this year's Climate Change Conference on March 12-March 13, 2020.  Please know that we have not made this decision lightly. While it is clearly in the best interest of all conference participants and the general public to cancel the conference we are disappointed not to be able to gather publicly to raise the voices of youth climate activists on campus. We look forward to rescheduling this conference next year and picking up this groundswell of momentum for climate action. 

For those conference participants who paid for the conference, we will be issuing a full refund for your conference registration. Processing these refunds will take a few weeks. Please be on the lookout for future communications regarding refunds as well as future climate change conference dates.
