Communities across the northeast are facing the reality of today’s climate challenges and are implementing solutions.

Starting at 9:00 AM, the Summit will provide a space to share projects, artwork, case studies, resources, experiences and skills to tackle climate change and implement solutions.

The transition to renewable energy and sustainability from a fossil fuel economy requires a solutions-focused movement.
