As climate change and wildfires become more pressing matters in California, scientists, lawyers, and decisionmakers must come together to decide how the policy will adapt to rapid environmental changes and scientific advancement. The Planning and Conservation League hopes to facilitate this discussion and promote forward-thinking at our annual event.

Each year, PCL addresses top environmental policy issues that face California. This year, PCL will look to the future, as panel topics will address the next steps for California’s water supply, climate change, land use, transportation, housing planning, and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). We will be inviting speakers from various backgrounds and perspectives to speak on their work in the environmental policy field in hopes of promoting discussion on how we can be more successful in adapting policy for the future.

With last year’s success, PCL will continue the Young Leaders Panel as a way to bring young advocates into the environmental policy conversation and provide those without a voice with a place to discuss their perspective on a more sustainable future and the work we can do to get there. Empowering the younger generations to continue the work ahead is critical to all of us.
