HBCU Climate Change Conference


​​​​​​​This annual conference was developed to bring together HBCU faculty and students, researchers, climate professionals and environmental justice and coastal community residents impacted by toxic facilities and severe weather events related to climate change in order to bridge the gap between theory and the experiential realities of climate change. The conference addresses issues related to climate justice, adaptation, community resilience, global climate issues, and other major climate change topics (i.e. transportation, energy sources, carbon emissions, green jobs/green economy, just transition, and community economic development).

The conference also engages local high school students in the conference activities. High school students are introduced to climate science within the context of how their daily life activities affect climate. The sessions are interactive, including computer-simulated games. To date, the Consortium has hosted eight conferences.
