Minimizing Georgia's Risks. Maximizing Georgia's Future.

What is the Georgia Climate Conference?

Hosted by the Georgia Climate Project, the 2019 Georgia Climate Conference will bring together nearly 400 leaders and experts from the publc, private, non-profit, and academic sectors to collaborate, raise awareness of work across the state, highlight progress, and identify opportunities to do more. We want to better understand: 1. What does a changing climate mean for Georgia? 2. What can we do about it?
