Climate League Partners to Deliver The Seventh Annual Arkansas Environmental Policy Summit

Collaborations build allies and deliver results. For the second year in a row, The Climate League joined other Arkansas environmental and policy organizations in putting on the Arkansas Environmental Policy Summit. In addition to being involved in foundational planning and sharing in logistical expenses, The Climate League collaborated on organizing two breakout panels: “The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” and “Climate and Public Health”.  Throughout the planning process,, we proceeded with an eye to highlighting issues and opportunities relevant to low-income families and struggling Arkansas communities and diversifying the core planning team and panelists.

The summit was held in person on November 18th at the Little Rock Audubon Center and was also streamed online. Keynote speaker Marshall Johnson, the Chief Conservation Officer for the National Audubon Society, moved attendees with his obvious enthusiasm for birds and the nation’s prairies and his inclusive message.
