Climate Change Conferences

Climate Change Conferences
Get trained. Get connected. Get out there. CCL’s national and regional climate change conferences will build your skills as a climate advocate.

Head to Washington, DC at our Climate Change Conference

Our conferences are held twice a year: during the summer (in person) and November/December (virtual). In the summer, join hundreds of CCL supporters in Washington, DC to learn about climate policy, build communications skills, and enjoy the company of other climate action advocates from across the world at our two-day conference. Then head to Capitol Hill to meet with your members of Congress. You’ll ask them to take action on climate change and hear their ideas. Experience the Capitol and our democracy in a new light. In the Fall, join an even larger cohort online, to hear from expert speakers, get trained, and connect virtually with thousands of advocates from around the world.

Regional & State Climate Change Conferences

Our regional and state conferences are smaller versions of our national conference. They add a focus on topics that are important for your state or region. You’ll also learn about state or regional climate change solutions that are important to working towards a national solution. Regional and state conferences are held once per year each, and vary between in-person and virtual events.
