Big Tent Climate Talks - Chesapeake Climate Action Network

Big Tent Climate Talks - Chesapeake Climate Action Network

January 28, 2021

Join us for the launch event of a new CCL Training pilot - Big Tent Climate Talks, a new, engaging, monthly conversation that spotlights leaders in the climate community outside of CCL doing important work in building coalitions around effective climate solutions.

At CCL, we know solving climate change requires a variety of policies and perspectives. That's why we do this work under a big tent that includes folks from the right, the left, and every spot in between. In our Big Tent Climate Talks, we'll talk to a wide variety of climate leaders outside of CCL to learn more about how we can all work better together.

These talks will take place for 40-45 minutes on the fourth Thursday of every month at 3:00 pm ET / 12:00 pm PT. Our launch event features a conversation with Jamie DeMarco and Quentin Scott of Chesapeake Climate Action Network and Taylor Krause, CCL’s National Partnerships & Coalitions Coordinator.
