This coming May, ecoAmerica is hosting the largest and most diverse climate leadership gathering yet, the 8th Annual American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS19). This year’s theme is Breakthrough, and the Summit is designed to empower climate leaders with the tools and know how to upend the climate status quo and transform climate action into a national priority.

ACLS19 will feature leaders from across all regions and sectors — faith, business, communities, health, academia — who are committed to broadening and catalyzing action and advocacy for climate solutions. In what will be the nation’s largest climate leadership summit to date, attendees will:

  • Explore and plan for ways to “breakthrough” to achieve rapid, meaningful climate solutions.
  • Learn the latest science and technology on climate and solutions from leading experts.
  • Share and hear success stories from a diversity of organizations and communities.
  • Learn how to engage and support frontline communities in successful climate advocacy.
  • Collaborate across sectors and constituencies to develop new partnerships, synergy.
  • Inspire and empower a rising generation of diverse leaders to elevate climate action and advocacy.

ecoAmerica is calling upon climate leaders from all sectors, and of all levels of experience, to attend the conference and join the conversation.

We are continuously adding new speakers. Here are a few new additions to our speaker lineup:

The ACLS19 host committee is excited to offer a limited number of scholarships to low-income participants to attend the conference. The ACLS19 Diversity Scholarship is funded by a generous grant from The Kresge Foundation and is open to participants from frontline, low-income, and/or underrepresented communities. Scholarship recipients who reside outside the greater Washington metro area may apply to receive a travel stipend and free admission to the event and those living in the area may apply to receive free admission. Both first-time and previous attendees of the summit are invited to apply here.

Now is the time to take action on climate, and there is no better way than to REGISTER and take advantage of our early bird pricing to guarantee your spot at ACLS19. BREAKTHROUGH the stalemate on climate, and join us in Washington D.C. at this year’s American Climate Leadership Summit!
