Citizens Climate Lobby Great Lakes Regional Conference

CCL Logo

The Great Lakes Region of Citizens Climate Lobby invites you to join with other like minded folks for a weekend of expanding our knowledge and capabilities to influence the direction of our national climate policy – and having fun while doing it. Fighting for a national policy to stop climate change requires discipline, focus, and strong relationships – with the policymakers we are working to motivate, and with each other.

This training is for everyone, regardless of experience. CCL Executive Director Mark Reynolds has designed a program to knock your socks off and move us all to the next level in our skills, no matter where we start from.

The core program, focused on lobby training, will run from 12 noon on Saturday to 1 p.m. on Sunday, but optional events on Friday night and Saturday morning will focus on local climate impacts, climate  science, and messaging skills.  The registration deadline is November 18th. Don't delay!  See the details in the
