We are pleased to announce that Mary Anne Hitt, Senior Director of the Climate Imperative, will be our keynote speaker at the 2022 Environment Summit 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 we will have a inspiring group of panelists 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:

  • Corey Lilly, City of Beckley, Director of Outdoor Development
  • Kathy Ferguson, Executive Director, Our Future West Virginia
  • Maura Ross, WV Sierra Club, Maryland Clean Energy Center
  • Jillian Blair, WVU Student Sierra Club
  • Facilitator: Christopher Plein, Professor of Public Administration, West Virginia University

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. Communal yurt lodging is available on site (hiking on gravel trails required).
