Climate Leadership Summit Coming to Central Florida


On November 8 and 9 in Orlando, Rainforest Action Network is launching an ambitious new project to change the course of history.

They are launching a series of climate-focused workshops and visioning sessions — in cities across the country as well as through a new online platform. Through this program, they will crowd-source a detailed vision of what a sustainable and just future would look like — and develop the strategies and tactics that will get us there.

Our opponents in the fossil fuel industry have their own vision for the future, one defined by rising oceans and ever-increasing carbon emissions — a future where extreme energy practices fly in the face of science and common-sense, and where the worst impacts of climate change are shouldered by the communities least able to bear them.

It’s not too late to define the future we want to live in.

Together, let’s change the course.

Please join us at the upcoming Climate Leadership Summit to kick this project off. This 2 day event will bring communities together for an innovative visioning, strategic development and skills summit. The event will strengthen and grow local groups and prepare our movement to take action together, with our end goals in mind.

RSVP now to be a part of it!
