Climate Leadership Summit, Houston TX December 13-14

Today, there is unprecedented momentum in the effort to stop fossil fuels and win climate justice.

However, with most of our attention focused on fighting short-term battles, we often forget to ask the question: What would the world look like if we won?

Change the Course, a new program from Rainforest Action Network, is an invitation to dig deep and think hard about what it would actually take to stabilize the climate and create a just transition to a post-carbon future.

We are launching a series of climate-focused workshops and visioning sessions — in cities across the country as well as through a new online platform. Through this program, we will crowd-source a detailed vision of what a sustainable and just future would look like — and develop the strategies and tactics that will get us there.

Our opponents in the fossil fuel industry have their own vision for the future, one defined by rising oceans and ever-increasing carbon emissions — a future where extreme energy practices fly in the face of science and common-sense, and where the worst impacts of climate change are shouldered by the communities least able to bear them.

It’s not too late to define the future we want to live in.

Together, let’s change the course.

Please join us at the upcoming Climate Leadership Summit to kick this project off. This 2 day event will bring communities together from across the region for an innovative visioning, strategic development and skills summit. We will strengthen and grow local groups and prepare our movement to take action together, with our end goals in mind.

This summit will take place on Saturday & Sunday from 12-5pm. RSVP now!
