As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read a statement from our President and CEO.

Join us for a lively discussion to identify common sense clean energy solutions that address the triple crises of COVID-19, job loss, and climate change in the new Congress.  Leaders from both sides of the aisle are ready to take a fresh look at policy options and act quickly to put Americans back to work, strengthen the economy, and address climate change all at the same time. The discussion will encourage discovery and curiosity from the audience and will be a chance to hear cutting edge thinking and engage with political leaders on sensible and actionable solutions. 

This Bipartisan Summit on Climate and the Economy will feature congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle with the aim of identifying common sense clean energy solutions that address the triple crises of COVID-19, job loss, and climate change in the new Congress.

The Summit is part of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum, and is convened in partnership with the American Conservation Coalition, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES), and Dream Corps Green for All.

You will be able to join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. Please register below to receive the Zoom access information for this event.
