Our Mission

We work in West Virginia and the surrounding region to help meet the challenge of global warming and the climate crisis.

WV3C programs emphasize impacts and issues that are most important to West Virginians, presented in non-confrontational opportunities for learning and dialogue. 

The West Virginia Center on Climate Change takes an “all of the above” position on climate solutions.  We welcome tax-deductible donations from individuals and foundations.
