Climate City Expo: Exploring Innovative Climate Solutions & Business Opportunities
March 29, 2019—April 7, 2019
A world prepared for a changing climate requires creative engagement from all people. Founded in 2018 in Asheville, North Carolina, Climate City Expo (CCx) offers professional and experiential tracks for individuals to explore innovation at the forefront of climate adaptation and resilience.
The heart of the experience is CCx: Business — a convening of global leaders and visionaries in business, climate science, sustainability, data, and entrepreneurship to discuss risks, opportunities, and solutions to humanity’s biggest challenge.
CCx 2019 features additional programming designed to engage our next generation of climate leaders and the public in different tracks that showcase the way our communities are rising to the challenge of climate change.
Home to the world’s largest repository of climatological data at the National Centers for Environmental Information, Asheville, North Carolina, has grown into an important hub of climate expertise. Our city’s climate-conscious ethos attracts entrepreneurs, chefs, builders, brewers, artists, and companies, large and small. They come for the elevated quality of life and the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. They contribute to a culture deeply connected to nature. They generate solutions that inspire the world.
