Climate Fast Forward 2022 gives everyone in Wisconsin the chance to be a part of the solution to the climate emergency. Participants will take stock of the progress Wisconsin has made towards mitigating and adapting to climate change since the 2019 conference, and will confront the challenges we still face in accelerating transformational change.

Plenary talks featuring statewide experts and leaders in clean energy and climate fields
