Event - American Climate Leadership Summit 2019 (ACLS19)

The 8th Annual American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS19), will take place on May 1-2, 2019 in Washington, D.C. The event is subtitled Breakthrough: Solutions and Leadership. Consistent with the Breakthrough theme this event will explore strategies and ideas to help transform climate action into a true national priority.

ACLS is the nation’s largest and most diverse gathering of leaders dedicated to broadening and catalyzing action and advocacy for effective climate solutions to redirect America toward climate action.  As the organizers explain on their website, if there was ever a time to bring leadership together to share learning, build collaboration, and publicly support climate solutions, this is that time. Now more than ever we need climate mitigation and advocacy, so that we can boldly move the needle on solutions.
