June 13 & 14, 2024
Savannah, Georgia and Zoom
Our third annual Environmental Justice and Climate Protection Conference brings together community leaders, concerned citizens, elected officials, academics, and industry experts. Together we will break information silos through information sharing focused on identifying solutions to heal and improve the environmental health of all Georgians.
“Pollution anywhere is pollution everywhere.” — Dr. Treva Gear
Attendees to this two-day conference receive solutions-oriented information on the dimensions of environmental health that impact Georgia residents. With sessions on environmental justice impacts, translating knowledge into action, and community coalition building, we will discuss, and more importantly, actively brainstorm, what community work can be done right now to move the needle on improving environmental health.
Conference Charge: What can be done *right now* to work with communities to move the needle on addressing environmental impacts on health? How can we measure success so that these immediate actions are sustained?
