About this Event

Everyone is invited to the online Citizens' Climate Southeast / Appalachia Conference. Citizens' Climate Education (CCE) and Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) provide education about the climate crisis that helps build political will for our elected officials to take effective action on climate change. Optimism and volunteer support has allowed us to achieve the impossible: gaining support for bi-partisan climate legislation in the 116th Congress.

Engage on a broad range of topics. Sign up for sessions and review exhibitors' websites at: Program and Exhibitors for Citizens' Climate Conference

This conference, which covers two regions, is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced members to actively get involved in moving our country toward climate solutions. You will be able to participate in sessions on several topics regarding sustainable communities, acting on climate, and science and engineering. Come join us to create the political will for a livable world while being empowered to have breakthroughs in your personal and political power.

Climate change continues unabated while we focus on the crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racism. We are learning from these world-wide crises to treat each other with humanity and adopt prevention measures, based on scientific evidence. These lessons apply to averting climate change as well. "Going from climate crisis to climate opportunity" is organized in panels and sessions in three tracks:

  • Sustainable Cities
  • Acting on Climate Change
  • Science and Engineering
