Localizing Climate Justice Conference Series

What is the LCJC?

 The Localizing Climate Justice Conference Series is a virtual conference series which will convene mayors, other policymakers, youth climate activists, and major stakeholders from around the world in the movement for climate justice in order to spotlight local approaches to climate reform & create space for an ongoing dialogue between policymakers and their constituents on the subject of climate change.

The series commenced with a launch event on September 25th. Since the launch, the Nature-Based Solutions Panel took place on December 19, 2020 and the Capacity-Building, Education, and Awareness Panel is slated for June 12th, 2021. All conference events will be free of cost to all wishing to participate.
