Join Us: National Health + Climate Forum at ACLS 2021

By Rebecca Rehr

Coming out of a year of multiple crises and a decisive election, 2021 is our moment to forge a path forward to a stable climate starting with ambitious American leadership on solutions.

The American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS 2021), celebrating its 10th year, will bring game-changing future-shaping ideas and a diversity of leaders together to ensure climate change is a local, regional and national priority. Building upon ecoAmerica’s MomentUs initiative, ACLS 2021 will inspire public support for bold climate policy, grounded in a multi-sector organizational and individual sign-on commitment to climate action.

Day 1 of the Summit, April 27, will kick off with the National Health + Climate Forum. Learn about the health and health equity implications of climate change and how to drive action and advocacy for climate solutions in. Hear the latest updates directly from national health leaders. Collaborate with local and national professionals in health and other sectors to develop new strategies to bridge the gaps of inaction and build resolve for solutions at home, your workplace, your community, and with policy makers.
