• December 5-6, 2020. CCL's International Fall Conference. The 2020 elections will shape our political strategy. The will to solve climate change is growing. 2021 could present historic opportunities for climate solutions, and CCL is preparing to move forward. At this conference, we’ll take a look at the road ahead. John Wood and Hahrie Han will discuss what the 2020 Presidential and Congressional election results mean for climate policy in 2021. And CCL’s Dr. Danny Richter will share key elements of CCL’s 2021 strategy based on the election. It's online this year, and it's free! Details and registration links are here. (

  • Coming up in 2021. A new season of Great Decisions. Great Decisions is a program of discussions about foreign affairs, sponsored nationally by the nonpartisan/nonprofit Foreign Policy Association and locally by the Tucson Great Decisions Association (TGDA). Meetings follow eight different topics each year, with a “briefing book” and showing of a related video. One of the upcoming topics will be changes in the Arctic. Groups are forming now for the 2021 season that begins in January. This year most groups will be meeting virtually via Zoom, but their times and starting dates vary. Go to the website of TGDA at for more information about the program, this year’s topics for discussion, a list of local groups with contact information, and a way to order briefing books.  New members are always welcome.
