The Hope Summit 2023 is a solutions-centric celebration of community action, stewardship, regenerative management, and systems-based solutions in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss. These events include a kick off party, conference and a festival.
Hope comes from agency and agency comes from actionable solutions. By Promoting collaboration between local solutions-driven organizations and facilitating means by which community members can get involved with those organizations, we can promote agency and thus hope in our local community.
The Hope Summit is a collaboration between the Carolina Ocean Alliance and the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network & 35+ other local organizations.
