The CCEC Forum fills a crucial need for local governments, community organizations and local leaders of all kinds to share experience and wisdom toward creating a more just, resilient and sustainable future. The future is being built today from the bottom up, through the efforts of local leaders focused on meeting the real needs and priorities of their communities. But we can’t just work in isolation. We need effective, inclusive venues to come together, share strategies and learnings, and support one another. The CCEC Forum facilitates both valuable networking and great fun.
