Climate Fast Forward 2022 gives everyone in Wisconsin the chance to be a part of the solution to the climate emergency. Participants will take stock of the progress Wisconsin has made towards mitigating and adapting to climate change since the 2019 conference, and will confront the challenges we still face in accelerating transformational change.
The 2022 conference brings together changemakers, including seasoned professionals, new voices, and diverse audiences representative of the Wisconsin people who are and will continue to be most impacted by the effects of climate change in our state. Conference attendees will work collaboratively in facilitated tracks to confront roadblocks and identify immediate and long-term actions that will move Wisconsin forward in combating climate change.
Conference participants will learn about the transformative work of leading climate experts, build connections through networking sessions and collaborative tracks, work closely with multidisciplinary artists to communicate messages about the climate emergency, and contribute their voices and opinions to an action plan that will accelerate transformational change.
Highlights of the conference:
- Five facilitated tracks designed to spur action on the climate emergency. Plenary talks featuring nationwide experts and leaders in clean energy and climate fields
- Networking sessions geared towards youth, non-profits, private industry, and other interest groups and fields
- Special programming by and for Tribal Nations leaders in environmental action
- Integration of artists, poets, and journalists
The conference is hosted by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters with the input from its Climate and Energy Leadership Network. Several people in the CIAS network plan to participate and hope to see you there.
