Welcome to The Public Interest Environmental Law Conference

We are thrilled to welcome back the 41st annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference (PIELC) to in-person programming in Eugene, Oregon. This year’s PIELC will take place from Thursday, March 2, 2023, to Sunday, March 5, 2023. PIELC will consist of panel and speaker programming, familiar to past attendees, with opportunities to socialize and collaborate after three years apart. 

The theme of this year’s conference is “Reconnecting and Transitioning Together.” While we’re working on reconnecting to each other, we’re also working on transitioning our habits and systems for a more sustainable future. The world must connect new people, ideas, and resources as we shift the dial on so many facets of environmental law and sustainability. Through this theme, we hope to emphasize connection to one another and transition to a more sustainable world. Now, more than ever, we need to join hands and work together in solidarity to build a world we can all live in. Check out our brochure with the schedule of events below!

The organizers of PIELC are committed to hosting an inclusive event that celebrates diversity, opposes injustice of all forms, and acknowledges the connection between oppression and environmental destruction. We are seeking each panel to be diverse and inclusive. Please feel free to share this email and submission form with friends, colleagues, and anyone else you want to see involved in PIELC.

Additionally, if you have suggestions on how PIELC can improve, please feel free to message us on Facebook or Instagram, or email us at askpielc@gmail.com.
