If there was ever a time to bring leadership together to share learning, build collaboration, and publicly support climate solutions – among and beyond the environmental community – now is that time.

The 8th Annual American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS19) is the nation’s largest and most diverse gathering of 500 leaders dedicated to broadening and catalyzing action and advocacy for effective climate solutions. The theme for 2019 is “Breakthrough” and we’re looking for just that—breakthrough strategies and ideas to help transform the climate action into a true national priority. 

Innovators from across the US, representing a multitude of constituencies, will collaborate on strategies to expand and accelerate leadership to restore our climate. This includes making public commitments to climate mitigation and advocacy, so we can boldly move the needle on solutions now, in 2020, and beyond.

Join us for the nation’s largest and most diverse climate leadership gathering in May 2019 to help redirect America toward climate action. Together we will:

  • Learn the latest science and technology on climate and solutions from leading experts.

  • Share and hear success stories from a diversity of organizations and communities.

  • Learn how to engage and support frontline communities in successful climate advocacy. 

  • Collaborate across sectors and constituencies to develop new partnerships, synergy. 

  • Inspire and empower a rising generation of diverse leaders to elevate climate action and advocacy.

  • Explore and plan for ways to “breakthrough” to achieve rapid, meaningful climate solutions.

The First Malaria World Congress will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 1 – 5 July 2018.

Malaria is without doubt one of the world’s leading health problems causing death and severe illness to millions each year at a scale that entrenches poverty and disadvantage in major swathes of the world. Despite impressive advances over the last decade, malaria remains a huge global and regional threat. The recently released World Health Organisation 2017 World Malaria Report is a salutary reminder that we are indeed at a tipping point which could go either way.

At present, there is no mechanism anywhere in the world for ALL stakeholders - those in affected communities, in government, in policy development, in implementation, in program finance, and in research - to gather and share information, to reach a consensus and to build a solid framework for collaborative action against malaria.
