 Our 2019 conference

Gina McCarthy wants us to fight the good fight. Mary Robinson reminded us that much of the hard work of addressing climate change occurs on the local level. Naomi Klein pointed out that economic change can be inclusive if it is centered on social justice and taking care of our planet.  Each year, our conference Keynote Speakers inspire and push us towards climate action.  We’ve heard their calls and that’s why our 2019 conference will focus on climate action and the change that happens from a groundswell of concerned citizens.  

Watch this highlight video and read these eight takeaways from our 2018 conference.
