About the Summit
In partnership with the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians, the Pala Band of Mission Indians, and the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals, the Climate Science Alliance is excited to co-host the 2022 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit (SWTCCS).
Join us May 16-18, 2022 for this year's theme:
"Exploring the Fire Within Us"
The 2022 SWTCCS will build upon key takeaways from the 2019 SWTCCS held in Idyllwild, CA. In 2022, we will once again bring together Tribal leaders, professionals, and community members from across the Southwest to explore the kinship with fire and its role in community, conservation, and climate change adaptation while putting our own unique twist with hands-on activities, networking, and professional training opportunities.

We invite you to join us for this interactive, leadership-style retreat, and will provide additional details in early 2022.
