It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that Thursday's Michigan Climate Action Summit, at the University of Michigan Union in Ann Arbor, has been canceled.
Gov. Whitmer issued a coronavirus state of emergency, and public health officials are recommending that large events like ours be canceled. We are looking into options to reschedule and will be in touch. So sorry for the inconvenience, but thanks for your understanding in the interest of public health.
Get motivated to act on climate through inspiring speeches and strong plenary panels. Then, roll up your sleeves to dive deep in engaging breakout sessions.
Gov. Whitmer will be the Keynote speaker at this year's conference! We are also honored that tribal leader Frank Ettawageshik and Ann Arbor Mayor Chris Taylor will be kicking off the summit. Stephen Edel will be joining us from New York to share how the NY Renews coalition passed the strongest climate and equity policy in the country.
2020 Keynote Speaker
Governor Gretchen Whitmer
|Frank Ettawageshik, Executive Director of the United Tribes of Michigan||Dr. Brandy Brown, Climate and Clean Energy Advisor for MI Dept. of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy|

Check out the rest of our lineup and schedule here!
The Summit will bring together the general public, climate advocates & scientists, activists, and policymakers in order to move Michigan toward just and rapid action to address the climate crisis.
Let's make equitable climate action a top priority for the Whitmer administration and set a bold agenda for Michigan's leaders to make the state of Michigan a leader on climate justice!
In addition to a day filled with inspiration and action, tickets include a delicious plant-based lunch and an after-Summit reception with a cash bar.
The event is currently sold out. If you would like to come, please sign up for the Summit Waitlist should tickets become available. In the meantime, RSVP to attend the next big thing: The Michigan Clean Energy Conference.
