Event description

Description

The Chicago Community Climate Forum is a gathering of civic leaders and engaged residents focused on building strong communities and taking action on climate solutions in the Chicago region.

In this spirit of engagement, 25 Chicago region organizations are convening a public forum on the eve of the first North American Climate Summit being hosted by the City of Chicago and organized by the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.

At the Forum, civic representatives, community organizations, emerging neighborhood leaders, and residents will engage in dialogue about climate challenges and solutions and their intersections with core concerns facing our neighborhoods - from clean air and water, to rewarding work, to safe and thriving environments.

The Chicago Community Climate Forum will

  • Feature local voices and stories
  • Show local support for the national and global goals of the North American Climate Summit
  • Inspire and activate local climate solutions
  • Present opportunities for potential partners to meet and exchange ideas
  • Inspire shared commitment to action

The program features leaders from the Chicago region and beyond, and showcase local artists and musical performances. A reception will follow the formal program.

Please Note:

We will share emerging details about the formal program and reception, getting to the event, and the Chicago Agreement on Climate and Community on this site and via email with those who register.
