What to Expect …

Empowering peer to peer sessions for the practitioner on Friday, led by some of Chicago’s finest practitioners. Each of these sessions will moderated and focus on one of six major themes (food, water, waste, shelter, energy and community resilience). They are being designed to be fun, fast-paced and culminate in an action plan. 

Education and awareness-raising workshops, with a focus on action. Workshops on hydrofracking and tar sands will be followed with strategy sessions to help move positive agendas forward. 

Fun, interactive skill-shares, providing attendees an introduction on a wide range of topics, including time banking; creating a food forest; tree coppicing; and beekeeping.

Time to network with keynotes, local speakers, colleagues and friends. Most of our keynote speakers are making themselves accessible all three days, and will be involved in Friday workshops; our Friday evening reception and book signing; optional Sunday breakfast; and more.

A designated track on Friday for High School Youth.

Inspiring music, dance and poetry, including our Saturday closing when we will “Sing for the Climate“, which will be filmed and then registered on the international website by the same name.
Exhibit Hall showcasing Chicago’s change makers.
