This year’s conference is for folks who want to get things done. Who want to get their hands dirty. Who walk in with questions and want to walk out (or dance out!) with answers. Everyone who works for climate resilience and social equity is encouraged to attend and participate!

Three big topics are on the agenda. From the main stage and in small groups, we will work together on how to: 

ACCESSING PUBLIC FUNDING FOR PROJECTS & PROGRAMS

Access public funding for crises like flooding and fires, for land conservation efforts like 30×30, for land stewardship and restoration, and for environmental justice and equitable access to the outdoors.

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AND GREEN JOBS

Increase and diversify the workforce for nature-based solutions to the climate crisis, and build meaningful career pathways within our organizations.

CAPACITY FOR NATIVE AMERICAN PARTNERSHIPS

Build and sustain right relations between local Native American tribes and non-Native allies for healthier lands and communities. 

SCHEDULE

  • Tuesday, May 9 | Virtual kickoff online from 9:00–10:30 am
  • Wednesday, May 10 | All-day, in-person conference at the Craneway Pavilion, Richmond

FIELD TRIPS

TOGETHER Bay Area member organizations are invited to host engaging and welcoming field trips for the 2023 conference. This is a great opportunity to:

  • Highlight your work on the regional stage (free publicity!)
  • Talk about successes and lessons learned (let’s build a regional learning culture!)
  • Meet and learn from your peers around the region, and to build the region’s capacity.

It’s also an opportunity to spend a day outside, and who doesn’t want that? 

Members! Please submit a proposal to host a field trip! Got ideas but not sure what to propose? Or got questions? Please contact us! Email Jen Isacoff at [email protected]
