One opportunity to get involved with the conference before the date is to submit compelling artwork geared at climate solutions, to be displayed during the conference. In order to be considered, complete this form (https://bit.ly/2DG0JRi), including a short description of your piece.

ONLINE RESOURCE HUB: This resource guide is a compilation of references (i.e. videos, scientific papers, websites, etc.) specifically related to climate change, with an emphasis on solutions. It is filled with science-based information from highly reliable sources, particularly because this subject can often times be very confusing, misleading, polarizing, and highly political.
