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 announce the 2022 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit (SWTCCS).
Join us on January 19-21, 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.

January 19-21, 2022
Registration for the 2022 Southwestern Tribal Climate Change Summit will open September 2021.
This event will be a three-day gathering, with engaging discussions and activities centered around the kinship with fire and its role in community, conservation, and climate change adaptation. We invite you to join us for this interactive, leadership-style retreat, and will provide additional details and opportunities for registration in the coming months.
*Organizers are committed to the safety of our community. While our hope is that we will be able to convene in-person by 2022, we will not be able to make this decision until mid-2021. Please stay tuned for updates.
