This year’s fifth NC Climate Justice Summit–March 1st-3rd at the Haw River State Park in Brown Summit–will again bring together a highly diverse group of people to put our strengths of head, hand and heart toward creating a vibrant future for all!
The Summit, like all the work of the NC Climate Justice Collective, centers the leadership of youth, indigenous peoples, people of color and frontline community members. We root our work in a cultural strategy that weaves together the 4 Rs of social transformation—Reform, Resist, Re-imagine and Re-Create.
This year’s Summit will be based on our interactive performance, The Good Fire, which offers a metaphor for practices of energy justice, community resilience, and collective liberation. Workshop tracks will feature skills building in each of the 4 Rs, as well as caucus-based discussions. We will continue to align frontline struggles against fracked gas pipelines, coal ash pollution, biogas from factory farms and biomass from deforestation.
All participating organizations will have the opportunity to showcase their work during the campaign fair. And of course, we hope everyone will bring something to share during the epic open mic night!
Join us at the Summit to find new sparks of inspiration and the warmth of authentic connection. Come get fired up!
