PIELC 2018: Local Character, Global Vision – March 1-4, 2018

Over the last 36 years, the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference has brought together thousands of activists, students, and professionals, from a diverse array of communities and cultures, to advance efforts for environmental and social justice. The 2018 conference is no exception. We are excited to unveil our theme, “Local Character, Global Vision”.  

One of the main goals for PIELC 2018 is to provide a space that enables growth beyond the four-day conference. We are committed to facilitating discussions, workshops, and panels that give participants the tools and knowledge they can apply beyond this special conference. We believe that change is possible and that it comes in many forms, including but not limited to changes in the legislature and in policy both at local and global levels. We further believe that change starts with each individual making a conscious effort to better their local community resulting in a nation-wide ripple effect.

PIELC 2018 will be held on March 1-4, 2018 at the University of Oregon School of Law.
