13th Annual California Climate & Energy Forum
The in person 13th Annual California Climate & Energy Forum #CCEC22 brings together several hundred local government staff, elected officials, and community organizations, so they can collaborate and learn from each other in their efforts to advance fair and equitable climate change and energy practices.
The forum will feature engaging sessions, expert plenaries and keynotes, and new innovative activities to help climate and energy leaders and practitioners connect to learn about innovative projects and strategies, share best practices, and troubleshoot challenges.
2022 Forum Theme: Accelerating Climate Action & Advancing Justice
The consequences of an extractive fossil fuel economy are here, but so are the solutions. As we work to implement climate and energy solutions, there are dual needs: an urgency to meet our goals and a need to do so in an inclusive, conscientious way without leaving anyone behind. So as we accelerate climate and energy action with new strategies and technologies, how can we create time for the tough and meaningful discussions we need to have? How do we ensure that solutions advance justice and include historically and presently disadvantaged communities? Through this forum, we are looking to engage local governments, state agencies, organizations, and any interested practitioners to facilitate sharing best practices, tools and ideas on how to approach our statewide and local goals effectively.

I am a new council member. I learned so much. I am so grateful for your financial assistance and support attending.
Great event as always! LGC does a fantastic job.
Really well organized conference and interesting topics. Thanks for the opportunity to attend!
As always, LGC did an amazing job pulling together the SEEC Forum. I always want to go to sessions but typically wind up in the hall networking due to the great connection points the Forum affords.
Being new to the industry, the conference provided lots of learning and networking opportunities.
I really enjoy the annual SEEC and I look forward to going again next year!
I enjoyed the style of opening presentations, ability to network/socialize during poster session, and informal networking opportunity at the brewery was very valuable.
Overall, a worthwhile learning and networking experience. Glad I attended!
