We received over 200 submissions for the American Climate Leadership Awards and narrowed it to 34 semifinalists, 10 finalists, including a runner up and winner. The awardees will receive $155,000 in total for their achievements. We can all learn from them and apply that learning in our own communities.Join us online to be inspired by the work of the ten ACLA finalists. You’ll hear from Judging Committee Chair Gina McCarthy, see short videos featuring the finalists, and watch the live announcement of the runner up and winner. We will also be making a special live announcement you won’t want to miss.
We didn’t want to hold back the rewards for these fantastic groups, or the learning they have to share just because we have rescheduled ACLS 2020 to August. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, we believe a bit of good news in the midst might offer a respite in addition to rays of hope. The climate emergency is unfolding in ways not unlike the COVID-19 pandemic. People and organizations across America are doing their best to address both.
We also hope you can join us at the rescheduled American Climate Leadership Summit on August 26-27 in Washington, DC, when we will be honoring all the awardees in person.
