WHO WE ARE
WV3C: a People-Powered Program
In 2014, 150 climate-concerned people attended a program at Blackwater Falls State Park in Tucker County, West Virginia. A dozen expert scientists discussed the impacts of the climate crisis on West Virginia’s economy and ecology, and how citizens of the region can meet this challenge.
That gathering of concerned people began the work of the West Virginia Center on Climate Change. Since 2014 more than 100 experts and thousands of citizens from all walks of life have participated in WV3C’s educational programs in communities around the Mountain State. Every day hundreds of West Virginians follow WV3C’s science-based outreach online.
This kind of “people power” is necessary to solve the climate crisis.
This page shows some of the people who have made the WV3C an important part of civic life in West Virginia.
