Common Ground: Building Resilience from Communities to Coastlines

Join us for Citizens’ Climate Education (CCE)'s ninth annual Third Coast Regional Conference on October 7, 2023 at Xavier University in New Orleans. The conference will focus on demonstrating how our voices matter as climate advocates and address how we can empower others to effect changes. It is open to anyone who wants to move our communities and country towards solving climate change. We’ll learn about climate impacts on vulnerable Gulf Coast communities, what is being done about it, and what you can do to get involved.


The registration fee includes a full day of programming, lunch, as well as drinks and snacks at our evening mixer featuring Scott Johnson and his quartet.

  • Early Bird Registration (by August 25) $45
