The Climate Action Conference will bring together diverse stakeholders on climate at a critically important time within our new political reality in America. Through the conference we intend to jump start new strategies for collaboration and communicating about climate change with particular focus on the essential roles of art, culture, psychology, and grassroots power. We intend to fuse our interests and efforts to determine how we might go forward together. We will use the design of the conference as well as our collective reach and resources to draw into the movement those who have been marginalized, those who have never been introduced to the issues at stake and those who are well aware of them but need to be awakened to the fact that it is now time to act.
*Session will include speakers Jeffrey Sachs, Sandra Steingraber, Tensie Whelan, and Peggy Shepard, and will cover topics such as “The State of the Climate Emergency”, “Climate Change & Public Health”, “Climate Change and Spirituality” in addition to special performances!
