“2022 and the Climate Crisis — What Just Happened, and What’s Ahead?”

October 3 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Announcing a live Hybrid Webinar to be held on Monday, October 3, 2022 — in-person in Charleston, West Virginia, and online via Zoom.

Registration for in-person and online attendance is here.

   Rising temperatures, severe climate change impacts, and an accelerating energy transition are taking place around the globe.  In the United States, major national climate and energy legislation seems likely to be enacted before the November 2022 elections.  What will this legislation mean for America and the planet?

   To address this question, on Monday, October 3, 2022 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM USET, the West Virginia Center on Climate Change (“WV3C”), partnering with the West Virginia Citizen Action Group and the West Virginia Climate Alliance, will present a free, live, expert-led, audience-interactive “hybrid webinar” program – in-person at the University of Charleston in Charleston WV, and online via Zoom. 

Registration via Zoom for both in-person and online participation is here.  

   The main program speaker will be Christina DeConcini, Director of Government Affairs at the World Resources Institute, where she oversees WRI’s legislative work and strategy on climate change and energy issues.  She is a Board Member of the Woodwell Climate Center (formerly Woods Hole Research Center) and President of the Board of the Pricing Carbon Initiative.  She serves as an advisor to Rural Investment to Protect our Environment and Keeping Current: A Sea Level Rise Challenge for Greater Miami. She earned a J.D. at Northeastern University and a B.A. in History at UC San Diego.  Other panelists are TBA. 

   A “hybrid webinar” combines an in-person and online Zoom audience and speakers.  Registrants receive a link to the online program by email (and reminder emails); and are also welcome to attend (space permitting) at an in-person venue where there are local speakers, cameras and microphones, and a large video screen.  The exact location at the University of Charleston for the in-person component of this program is not yet determined.  When it is, all registrants will be notified, including any space limitations.  A video recording will be posted at the WV3C YouTube Channel.   

We hope you can attend – and please notify your climate-concerned friends and colleagues!  For more information, go to https://wvclimate.org/ or email info@wvclimate.org.  Thanks to the Appalachian Stewardship Foundation and the Dunn Foundation for making this program possible.
