The 2022 Environmental Summit is almost upon us – have you registered? Join us and other West Virginia environmental organizations to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the state’s environmental movement.
ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24
We are pleased to have Mary Anne Hitt, Senior Director of the Climate Imperative, deliver our keynote address on Saturday, September 24! Prior to joining Climate Imperative, Mary Anne was with the Sierra Club for 12 years where she served as National Director of Campaigns and also worked for a decade as director of the Beyond Coal Campaign, recognized as one of the most successful environmental campaigns in history.
Also on Saturday is an inspiring group of panelists who will talk about the future of the environmental movement with a focus on environmental justice, youth involvement and empowerment, and sustainability in our communities and our workforce:
There will be a hike in Coopers Rock State Forest in the afternoon and music by Lucia Valentine in the evening.
ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
Stick around for Sunday when we will discuss legislative strategy for the upcoming session and wrap up the weekend with ziplining (separate registration required)!
Registration is free but required so we can plan meals and lodging. Free communal yurt lodging is available on site (hiking on gravel trails required). Local hotel info can be found on the registration site. Portions of the Summit will also be livestreamed on our Facebook page.
